Champion quality, others accept that which we reject

August 15, 2019

As part of Champion Timber’s core values we take the utmost pride in providing the customer with an extremely high standard of service. At all 10 of our branches, whether the customer is buying premium softwood timber, treated joist timbers, MDF, or just a box of screws, we will be more than happy to help with the enquiry, and of course we will assist in loading their van if they visit us in person.

Timber Source

At Champion we take our environmental responsibilities seriously and are careful to verify that our sources meet the highest standards.

We use rigorous verification systems to monitor our supplies. We have an Environmental Chain of Custody Certification for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).

Our suppliers are also independently audited for the Responsible Purchasing Policy (RPP) of the Timber Trade Federation and Forests Forever.

We use rigorous verification systems to monitor our supplies, so whatever you may see or read about others, you can be assured that all our timber and timber related products are all certified.

Timber Service

Champion staff members will always greet and assist the customer upon arrival. Consequently, the customer will then be walked through the yard and provided a personal service to make the visit as efficient as possible. We take pride in the fact that we are one of few remaining merchants that aren’t “self-service”.

Most noteworthy in the fact that we still want the customer to interact with at least three people throughout their journey to create a more friendly and personal relationship. Champion staff are all highly trained and being a specialized timber merchant, we know all about wood. But we also understand and can help with enquiries on other timber related projects.

Timber Supply

All our softwood timber goes through a vigorous grading process that rejects all bent, warped, and knotted timber, and then we machine it ourselves. This ensures not only excellent quality, to save time on site with snagging or making good, but also consistent and plentiful supply. New stock is delivered to each branch daily, so the customer always can always be satisfied from stock, no wondering if we have it!

In addition, for those individual profiles, we also provide a “Profile-Match” service,  therefore meaning that our supplied range is essentially endless! All the customer needs to do is bring in a profile be it skirting  or window board and we will match the design and machine it in a variety of timber species, however many lengths they desire.
