Timber & Plywood Services - About Us
Timber & Plywood Services is one of Renfrewshire's business jewels; started by Alistair Wilkie in 2003, the company began it’s life from rented warehouses in Blackhall St, (just off Loanend in Paisley); The company then purchased and relocated to more suitable premises on the Ferguslie main road, near Linwood, in May of 2009;. This facility had been empty for about a year or so and was suffering from a deal of neglect, until the TPS team moved in and transformed the place into a practical and inspiring working environment: the showroom, sales area and offices are bright, airy and comfortable whilst the timber storage areas have been well thought out and lend themselves to safe and efficient working; the mill, itself, is spacious and is, easily, coping with the increased volume of work being created from this new location.
The new premises, along with its dedicated and friendly staff are available to welcome the trade and public, alike. The new showroom is a comfortable, interesting environment in which to discuss and get advice on your own particular projects. Why not pay them a visit. You'll be surprised at the great range of products and fantastically good value on offer!
Now there’s some “Wood for Thought”
To ensure best possible efficiency, in the new premises, the company has invested in lots of new kit including cantilever racking, upgraded counterbalance forklift, Side-Tracker & Combilift multi-directional forklifts, timber barrows and Bistrack (bespoke computer software). These investments ares, of course, ongoing and can only add to the company’ s ability to offer the first class service to which its staff are always striving to achieve.
Alistair, along with his management team of Colin Campbell, Paul Kirkpatrick, Margaret Ann Speirs and Pat Harvey have many years of industry experience between them and have built the company’ s reputation on slick, efficient service. Same day delivery is commonplace, next day delivery the norm; the mill regularly provides a while-u-wait cutting service and can even offer specialist profiles within a couple of days or so. This sort of service is a passion within the company and helps to set it apart from and ahead of its competition. TPS is renowned, amongst its existing customers, as being major suppliers of fencing and decking products, this range now extended to include Q-Grip slip resistant decking and Twinson composite decking; although the company’s stocks also include doors, doors, plywood, gyproc, insulation, ironmongery, tools, dressed timber , etc. In fact, they can supply almost anything you might require on your building or DIY project.
