About Us

Ilkeston’s longest serving timber yard.

Trading since 2010, and now encompassing MTS Timber we are proud to have been serving Ilkeston since 1990.

Serving both trade and DIY customers, we offer a comprehensive range of products aiming to serve a variety of projects. From your small, indoor repairs to building a shed from the ground up – we’re here to help! We offer a unique pay-for-what-you-use cutting service and hold one of Derbyshire’s widest range of sheet materials, including; WBP, Marine and MDF. This is complimented by our range of timbers and fixings.

COVID-19 procedures

While we have been fortunate enough to remain operational throughout the Government instructed lock-down, we have had to drastically change the way we work. 

Our aim has always been to keep traders working and allow those at home to complete projects or make necessary, urgent repairs where required. Our gates closed on Friday 27th May, after an intense first week of lock down causing wide spread panic in the industry. This remains the case at the moment, and will do until we feel we can guarantee the safety of our staff, customers and colleagues in the yard. 

We are still accepting all orders by phone and email (please see information at the top of the website). When emailing please be sure to include – 

  • – A full list of the goods you require
  • – All measurements required – length, width, depth. 
  • – Any deadlines you require the goods by.
  • – If you are buying for business use, please include your business name.
  • – Your best contact number.

Traders – we will call to arrange either a collection appointment or delivery

DIYers – we will call to arrange delivery

We appreciate that a lot of places are opening as lock down eases – unfortunately our yard is not set up for safe social distancing with the number of staff and customers we would usually see. We are keeping our Facebook page updated as we have any updates.

What we pride ourselves on

Excellent service

Our aim is to offer a service that is second-to-none in the industry. Customer loyalty is the foundation of our organisation and we believe that the service we offer is what this loyalty is built on.

Happy to help

No job is too big or too small – our team holds a wealth of experience in the industry so we are able to help even the novice DIYer. If you are unsure of anything, there will always be someone available to help in store, on the phone or by email.

Great value

We always look to offer fair, competitive pricing, that reflects the quality of both our products and our service.

Unique cutting and delivery services

We offer a unique pay-for-what-you-use cutting service – you only pay for the sections you destroy to the closest quarter of a board. Alongside our delivery service, which is next day wherever possible, its fair to say we set our standards above the industry norms.
