Part of the Haldane Group, one of the largest independent merchants in the UK and Ireland, G E Robinson has invested over £350K in a brand new high-pressure timber treatment facility at its Walsall site.

The new 2m diameter x 12.5m long treatment vessel will allow G E Robinson to increase and extend its stocks of green and brown preservative-treated sawn and machined timbers for their customers in the construction, agricultural, garden buildings, landscaping and fencing sectors.

Branch manager, John Leach commented, “It is a very exciting time for Robinson’s. Over the past six months, the site has undergone a major refurbishment in its milling facilities creating extra capacity for machining, re-sawing and cross-cutting work. The treatment plant is the last piece in the jigsaw and will be a game-changer for the business allowing us to offer excellent quality treated timber to our customers.”

“We will be ramping up our stocks of Treated Sleepers, Fencing, Purlins and Shed/Stable Timbers to service our existing and new customers. We will also be offering a very competitive treatment service for our customers’ own timbers when required. This service can include collection and delivery when required throughout the Midlands region.”

“We have partnered again with Lonza who are market leaders in timber protection. Using the very latest TANALITH wood preservative with its unique and award-winning BARamine technologies built-in will give our customers the confidence of using long-lasting timbers, protected against decay and insect attack, that will do the job they are expecting.”

“Our treatment plant operators are experienced in providing relevant treatments to meet the eventual end-use requirements of the timbers. Equally, our sales team can provide advice to our existing or potential customers about the key treatment considerations when buying treated timbers from G E Robinson or arranging service treatments to meet their exact needs.”

This is the fourth TANALITH plant to be installed into the Haldane Group with other plants at their Salford, Garstang, and Newry sites.
