Howarth Timber has appointed two new staff at its Scunthorpe branch, as well as a new regional manager for Lincolnshire.

Having worked at Howarth Timber for 24 years, John Brandon has become the new regional manager. 

John will be challenged to make the Scunthorpe branch the number one timber and builders’ merchant in the region. The store will benefit from major investment and is currently undergoing a major refurbishment to its interior, including a new flooring display and increased tool offering.

John commented: “This is an exciting time for Howarth Timber’s Scunthorpe branch, and for the company as a whole as we strive to be the best timber and builders’ merchant in the UK.

“The addition of two experienced professionals has given our entire staff a boost and, with the branch refurbishment soon to take place, we are looking forward to giving our customers a better service and trading experience than ever before.”

In addition to John’s appointment, Kevin Danks has been made branch manager for Scunthorpe. Kevin has 15 years’ experience in the building industry and specialises in building products, draining and civil products.

The final appointment is Karl Wilmore, who will focus on expanding Howarth’s customer base as an external sales executive. Karl has over 13 years’ experience in the industry and will be supporting Kevin to ensure that all staff are equipped with the expertise to provide customers with a first rate experience.
