When processing each batch of wood, Hoppings production staff grade out pieces deemed not fit for purpose. Our machining facilities allow for sub-standard material to be rejected prior to entering our moulding machines. This feature of Hoppings manufacturing processes is particularly relevant to the supply of our competitively priced set piece trade packs of planed and mouldings, Q-Pack’s. Unlike the majority of our competitors, products in Q-Pack form also go through the same selection process ensuring quality isn’t compromised at the expense of price.
HIGH PRESSURE TREATMENT
At our Epping site we have a treatment plant and bunded covered drying area where we high pressure treat our timber to the Use Class requirement needed for its expected use.
The Timber Treatment Process
To the right is the step-by-step process of the high pressure treatment process for Tanalith™ wood preservative.
For quality assurance we have robust testing in place to ensure the consistency of our treatment.
We hold a very similar and substantial stock of finished goods at both our Epping and Lingfield depots. We find this gives us flexibility and the ability to provide our customers with what they want when they want it especially in and around London.
Epping has approximately 35,000 ft2 of undercover areas versus Lingfield at 40,000 ft2
We specialise in being able to break bulk in most products providing merchants who struggle for storage space with a flexible just in time stock service. We can also supply most products in bulk packs if required.
Q-Pack, the term for our set piece trade packs of planed all round and mouldings ensures a competitive price without compromising on quality.

Hoppings put a huge amount of effort in driving sales lead enquiries to our network of brand retail stockists. This is performed in a number of ways such as consumer and trade advertising, product directories, public relations exercises, our brand specific websites and product directory type websites that target the commercial/large residential sector.
Consumers are re-directed to our retail partners on a daily basis. Telephone enquiries are managed by the Hoppings telesales team who, in principle link enquiries with the nearest brand stockist. Sales enquiries sent in via one of our many digital website forms are handled in the same way. Consumers can also raise enquiries directly with stockists via our brand specific websites where contact information and website links are actively promoted
At Hoppings we understand the need for the effective promotion and storage of our products at our retail stockists. Over the last decade we have developed a range of marketing tools from space saving storage units to in-depth point of sale literature and product awareness posters.
