Suppliers of English and European hardwoods Sutton Timber have announced that Ben Sutton has taken over the full running of the business from founding partner, and brother, Tom Sutton.

Ben (pictured) has also decided to expand his product range with the inclusion of engineered flooring and a joinery shop on site, which enables him to create individual items as well as bulk orders.

Commenting on the transition, Ben said: “The new business is even bigger and better than before. Whilst we have kept the trading name as Sutton Timber the products which I am taking to market have increased which means that I can deliver even better service.

“As I now visit the forests and woods, inspect all the logs I am buying before my fabulous team then move them to the yard, it means that I have complete control over the end to end process. This means that I can talk about the heritage of every piece of wood that I sell.”

Sutton Timber has been established for 20 years supplying timber to builders, architects and clients direct from its headquarters in Sotterley Sawmills, Beccles.
