Intro To Howarth Timber

Howarth Timber is much more than just timber. Discover more about who we are and what we can offer you.

At Howarth Timber & Building Supplies, we pride ourselves not only on quality and value for money but also offering knowledge that you can trust. Over the coming months, you'll find news and information that we hope you'll find useful, including hints and tips that will ensure you are getting the most from the products you purchase. 

But first things first, if you're not familiar with us you may be asking yourself, who are we? Well, we're glad you asked! Let us tell you about ourselves. 

Founded in 1840, and originating from humble Yorkshire roots, Howarth Timber has a rich history as a family run business and have recently celebrated 175 years of trading as the UK's largest independent timber merchant.  

Whilst you probably know your local Howarth Timber merchant well, what you might not realise is that your local branch is part of a much wider Howarth Timber Group; the size of which may just surprise you. 

Much More Than Just Timber 

Our expansive network of timber and builder's merchants spans the length of the country, from Malton up in North Yorkshire right down to Dartford in the South. In total HTBS covers 31 branches, each providing a jaw-dropping product range to both trade and DIY customers, from timber and sheet materials to doors, floors and joinery, as well as everything in between. Plus, with the introduction of the Howarth at Home showrooms, we now offer a fantastic range of kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms as well. 

Our award-winning website ('re on it right now) helps to pull each of our branches together, making them even more accessible and creating an easier shopping experience for you, our customer 

The website allows you to: 

  • Buy online from your local branch with just a few clicks of a button
  • Make purchases using your branch trade account 
  • View live stock levels 
  • Gain instant access to the fantastic offers available across the branch network 

Howarth at Home 

Part of our Howarth Timber branches and specialising in turning a house into a home, Howarth at Home's exquisite showrooms (and one stunning studio in Barrowford) offer kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms to suit all budgets, tastes, needs, and requirements.  

Many of our showrooms also offer the classic British style from the popular homeware brand: Laura Ashley. 

As you can see, our Howarth Timber branches certainly deliver on the tagline "Much More Than Just Timber", however, there is still so much more to our company than meets the eye.
