In this the 150th Year of the TTJ, the Award was once again open to companies across Europe, the UK and Ireland, to vote for their choice of ‘Best in Class’ timber supplier. Glennon Brothers is still the only home-grown timber supplier to have won this award!!
Mike Glennon, said; “We are delighted to win the prestigious TTJ award for Timber Trader; Sawmiller of the Year 2023, completing a five-in-a-row of triumphs since 2019, despite once again being up against an exceptionally strong list of fellow nominees. To follow up our success of the last four years in the same category is especially pleasing and I’d like to sincerely thank our customers for voting for Glennon Brothers, and for their continued support and faith in us. This year has continued to be challenging for the sector. The ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, and difficult trading conditions as the ECB and Bank of England continue to raise interest rates to tackle high inflation, have lead to a more uncertain trading environment. Throughout the period, we have endeavoured to support our customers as best we possibly can, and their reciprocal commitment to Glennon Brothers is so greatly appreciated. Over 900 families in the UK and Ireland, depend on Glennon Brothers, for their livelihood. On their behalf, I would like to say a big thank you, for your business.”
Pat Glennon, commented; “Picking up this award for a fifth time, is another proud moment for Glennon Brothers and will mean an awful lot to our colleagues across the business. To maintain a level of service to our customers that they are willing to acknowledge by way of this award is a fantastic achievement for our entire team, who have continued to work tirelessly throughout this challenging period. Our mantra is ‘from forest to front door, we endeavour to care more’ and we will do our utmost to uphold this in the eyes of our customers in the years ahead.”
