Taylor’s Timber Centre officially opened by George Galloway
Bradford West MP George Galloway officially opened a Bradford timber depot following a major investment and upgrading programme.
Taylor’s Timber Centre in Thornton Road, was bought by managing director Charles Taylor in July last year out of the administration of its Denholme-based parent company CR Taylor Ltd, in a move which saved five jobs.
Since then. Taylor’s Timber Centre has extended its showroom, invested in new equipment, introduced new product lines and services, and three new jobs have been created.
The company serves an expanding customer base of builders, joiners and DIY enthusiasts.
Mr Taylor said the investment was already paying dividends with a noticeable increase in trade from existing and new customers. “We are now well-equipped for future growth,” he said.
New product lines include plaster, plasterboard and insulation, while a free design service for stairparts, decking and fencing has also been introduced.
Along with increased stock ranges and quantities in the revamped timber yard, an additional timber saw has been installed to enhance the on-site cutting service.
A new vehicle has also been purchased to improve delivery.
Mr Galloway said firms like Taylor’s Timber Centre deserved help, support and encouragement from local and central government, as they sought to expand and make an impact on the regional economy.
