About Us

Bates Timber Merchants was founded in 1992 by Peter Bates and his father John. Peter now has sole charge of the business since his father’s retirement in 2005 and the business is managed by both Peter Bates and Gavin Allen, who between them have over 60 years experience in the timber trade.

The management team are supported by Suzanna Aris, the Company Secretary, who runs the financial side of the business and who is also involved in sales.

They are supported by an enthusiastic team of staff at the counter, in the yard and the mill and out on the road making the deliveries. This expert and experienced team are always on hand to help with any queries or pieces of advice, so why not call in or if you prefer click here to send an email.
