TIMBERWeb® - The Best Known Web site for TIMBER & Lumber on the Internet
For well over a decade TIMBERWeb® has been the leading Global Timber and Lumber Marketplace on the Internet. It provides an unrivalled Networking Environment for Sellers to find new Buyers and Buyers to find new Suppliers by offering different levels of membership according to the level of access and presence on the site that is required. Unsurprisingly it survived the dotcom downturn at the turn of the millennium and has grown since to a Global Directory of over 200,000 timber and lumber businesses and a membership of more than 50,000 from nearly 200 countries.
Over the years it has won many prestigious awards from organizations such as the Financial Times Best Business Web Site – Site to Watch Award, eBusiness Excellence Award from Barclays, Sunday Telegraph, Computer Weekly, the East Anglian Development Agency (EEDA), and was selected as a Vision 100 Company by British Telecom in conjunction with Cranfield University and Management Today. TIMBERWeb was also the recipient of the Burns Supply Chain Management Award announced at the annual CBI conference.
TIMBERWeb® has been featured on CNBC Television Power Lunch and was a Case Study for the Prestigious Ambrosetti Club in Milan. The TIMBERWeb eTrading platform was launched by Patricia Hewitt in Sweden and has been featured in literally dozens of case studies across the Internet. TIMBERWeb® was identified in global equity research as ‘the leading eMarket for timber’ by UBS.
It doesn’t just reside on the Internet but has been demonstrated at Exhibitions throughout the world including the US, China, Middle East, Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, Ireland and of course UK.
