James Latham to expand sales team across Ireland

Timber and panel products distributor, James Latham, is going from strength to strength, both in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Under the stewardship of Darren McErlean, over the past few years, the business has consistently grown, and it is now looking at expanding its sales force.

Offering the most comprehensive and varied product range available in the market, Latham’s portfolio includes panel products, hardwood, joinery- quality softwood, performance doors, solid surface, cladding and decking and comprises some of the most recognised brands in the world, many of them available on an exclusive or semi-exclusive basis, all from a single source and directly from stock. With a 24–48-hour service*, the business delivers daily into both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland from its 60,000m2 warehouse in Leeds, one of 10 strategically placed, state-of-the-art facilities within the UK.

“The sheer range of products that we offer, coupled with excellent product knowledge and technical expertise within our existing team, as well as a reputation for delivering excellent customer service means that business is booming and, in order to further grow sales and volume, we are now looking to bolster our sales team here,” said Darren.

Established in Liverpool in 1757, James Latham has an impressive and rich history and, over two and a half centuries, has built an enviable reputation. Under the continuing direction of the Latham family (the current management team includes a number of ninth generation family members) it has witnessed and often participated in a number of major historical and technological developments and this has moulded the business into an extremely forward-looking organisation. James Latham has made positive moves towards stocking products exclusively originating from sustainable and correctly managed forests, in particular FSC® and PEFC® certified products. The company is also a member and supporter of the Timber Trade Federation and was the first signatory to the Federation’s Responsible Purchasing Policy.
