Celebrating over 100 Years of Arnold Laver

From 1920 to 2020, Arnold Laver’s journey from one man and a single depot in Sheffield after World War 1, to now being part of the largest independant timber merchant in the UK; with a network of 19 depots across the country, is a success story in itself!

We believe that strategically located distribution depots, stocked with significant quantities of a broad range of product and supported by well trained employees, will allow customers to have confidence that their individual requirements will be fully satisfied on time, in place and on price.

We aim Tto be the first choice supplier for certified timber and timber based materials in the UK by making it easy for our customers to trade with us.
