Howarth Wakefield

Client & Location

Howarth Timber Ltd (Wakefield, U.K) is a long established family run Builders Merchant with branches covering a number of regions, mainly in the north of England.

Project Description

The company have invested heavily in the upgrade and expansion of their busy Wakefield branch with a completely new retail area and kitchen / bathroom showroom. We were asked to provide and install the shopfitting shelving (including specially manufactured items) plus long span shelving and a bespoke 8.4m sales counter in Howarth livery.

Challenges and solutions

As with so many projects the first challenge was the timeframe which was quite tight. We were able to rely on our own stock to fulfill the shelving element and we worked closely with our own suppliers and the Howarth Branch Manager in order to achieve the delivery deadlines. Everything was supplied and fitted on time and to the client’s complete satisfaction.


“I found the service from Alser second to none, the attention to detail and understanding of my requirements was a credit to their sales team. Despite tight deadlines all our goods were delivered on time and most importantly on budget.”

(John Brandon – Branch Manager)
