It means Glennon Brothers is the only home grown timber supplier to have won the award in the competition's history.

Mike Glennon, Joint Managing Director said; “We are thrilled to win the prestigious TTJ award for Softwood Trader of the Year 2020, once again up against an exceptionally strong list of fellow nominees.

"To follow up our success of last year in the same category is especially pleasing and I’d like to sincerely thank our customers for voting for Glennon Brothers, and for their continued support and faith in us.
