Timber Merchant ‘Longridge Timber’ is currently celebrating after establishing themselves at a new location near Preston city centre.


The company distributes high quality timber and related products to a range of customers in the North West including DIY enthusiasts, property developers and building and joinery trades.

Longridge Timber has now set up a new branch on Ribbleton Lane and is already thriving due to its central location.

The company is ran by husband-and-wife team John and Sue Cornthwaite, who are excited about the new branch which opened on 1st February.

The new outlet has also created six new jobs.

John Cornthwaite, spoke to Business Lancashire and said: “As well as being able to service a wider area of Preston it will also prove to be more convenient for existing loyal customers both trade and domestic, who will be warmly welcomed at the new site.

“We have been looking for quite a while now for the most suitable location, although we deliver in the North West it is important to have a location that is convenient for our customers to visit, see the quality of our wood for themselves and also to be able to make use of our on-site cutting service.”
