All three branches of a leading Northwest chain of independent sheet material suppliers now use Striebig Compact vertical panel saws following two recent purchases. Timber and sheet material importers G E Robinson, of Salford, and associate company Garstang Timber and Building Supplies, of Preston, have bought Compact 4164 models to handle all their sheet material sizing.
Euroken Supplies, an independent builders’ merchants specialising in timber cutting, has bought a new-look Striebig Standard vertical panel saw for its new branch in Stanmore, Middlesex. Like the company’s other branch, in Willesden, north-west London, it stocks large quantities of sheet material. These range from standard plywood and MDF panels to top-of-the-range veneered boards in Oak, Walnut, Wenge and other timbers.
Efficiency at long-established timber and builders’ merchant W.G. Powell Ltd has been boosted with the purchase of a Striebig Standard vertical panel saw, chosen for its ease of use and maintenance. Despite intense competition from the retail ‘sheds’ and larger merchants in the area, the small, family-owned Oxford-based business, founded in 1923, has built up a loyal customer base amongst local tradesmen and DIY customers.
Champion Timber has bought a Striebig Standard vertical panel saw to carry out sheet cutting duties at its Sutton, Surrey, branch. It follows the purchase of an identical model for the company’s Dorking branch. This brings to four the number of Striebig saws at the timber merchants, which has nine outlets across the South East of England.
