Arnold Laver Timber World has officially opened a brand new depot in the heart of Sheffield, following a £4million redevelopment.

The timber giant has relocated just around the corner from its Chesterfield Road site in the city to bigger and better premises on Little London Road.

Arnold Laver chairman David Laver unveiled a plaque at the new site to mark the opening, continuing the company’s improvements to its Sheffield facilities.

A £2,500 cheque presentation to Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity was also made at the opening, with senior fundraiser Simon Athey and Theo the Bear collecting the cheque on behalf of the charity.

Barry Boulby, general manager at Arnold Laver’s Little London Road site, said: “The official opening marks the start of an exciting time for the company and follows a major redevelopment by the organisation, highlighting its commitment to industry in South Yorkshire.

“The site has undergone a £4million transformation, changing it from an old warehouse into a modern site, which includes an extensive kitchen and bathroom showroom.

“It will enable Arnold Laver to offer more products to both members of the public and trade, while providing opportunities for further growth.”

Arnold Laver’s new depot will stock a range of building products to meet all the requirements for the trade, while continuing to house a large selection of hardwoods, softwoods and flooring. Little London Road will also be home to a selection of doors, windows and stairs.

Last year Arnold Laver opened a brand new headquarters on Bramall Lane following a multi-million redevelopment and in 2002 launched a 16-acre flagship national distribution facility in Mosborough.
