Continued On-Going Investment
Since the late 1990’s Hoppings has become one of the U.K.’s leading suppliers of machined softwood and this is in part due to our focus on making the right investments at the right time at both depots. It is vital to have the correct infrastructure in place for a timber distributor like Hoppings to service timber and builders merchants with the level of product quality and service required now and in the future and why Hoppings continue to re-invest its profits on an on-going basis.
We firmly believe that the investments made on infrastructure and machinery over the last 20 years has enabled Hoppings to remain competitive and continually responsive to the needs of our merchant customers. The images and caption below illustrate some of the more major elements of the investments made since 1997 in which time we have spent in excess of £3.5 million.
