The Timber Trade Journal’s (TTJ) most coveted award – ‘Softwood Trader of the Year’ – has been won by Glennon Brothers following an awards ceremony at the Hilton Bankside Hotel in London.
The TTJ Awards, now in their 23rd year, are widely seen as the most prestigious in the timber sector.
The award was open to companies across the UK and Ireland, to vote for their choice of ‘Best in Class’ timber supplier.
Glennon Brothers is the first ever home grown timber supplier to win the award. Glennon’s was also one of only three finalists selected for the ‘Smart Manufacturing’ award.
The £14 million biomass Combined Heat & Power (CHP) plant, was recognised as an investment project that has led to a significant improvement in production efficiency.
Completed in 2018 in the Troon facility in Scotland, the plant produces 2.5MW of electrical power, sufficient to supply the entire site, with surplus energy being exported to the UK national grid.
Pat Glennon, joint Managing Director of Glennon Brothers said; “This win is recognition of the hard work and effort put in by the people working in Glennon Brothers. We are very fortunate to have such a great team. Thanks to everyone in the business, who strive to deliver high quality products and excellent customer service from forest to front door.”
