What we mean by Quality

The best quality softwoods are sourced from much colder climates - they are denser, tighter grained and have less knots. Typically, our joinery materials are imported from Sweden, Finland and the North Baltic area in general which we believe enables us to supply a better product than most other outlets...

From Wednesday 15th July Allen & Orr Ltd will be open as normal and we will be running normal business hours Monday to Friday & Saturday morning. (Hours may vary if government guidelines change)

Card payments are preferable where possible for non-account customers.
Customers will be required to remain with their vehicle at all times.

Due to the fact that Covid-19 is unfortunately still a factor to take into consideration we would ask that all customers respect our members of staff when asked to follow the guidelines set out with regards to queuing, hand sanitation and social distancing. Waiting times may be longer than normal.

Whatever you need wood for, please give us a call, or drop in.

Sectional sizes for planed and machined items are “nominal sizes” - please enquire regarding the availability of lengths. We endeavour to reduce waste-factors where ever possible but it is not always possible to supply lengths specific to the customers’ requirements.
