Hoppings have launched a brand new and innovative e-commerce solution for their independent timber and builders merchant customers. Our Building products Online Directory known as BOLD is now live. This online facility allows merchants to add and sell their own buildings products through their website alongside Hoppings Q-Deck decking and Q-Line mouldings. It has only been operational for 72hrs and the first two merchants to use it have already added in excess of 500 of their own building products between them. So far six merchants in total have signed up to take advantage of the BOLD facility.

Welcome to the BOLD new era at Hoppings.
Forestrall Timber & Fencing Merchants Sign up for Hoppings new timber and builder merchants eCommerce solution.
Chris From Forestrall had this to say: “Congratulations to the team at Hoppings / Q-Deck for a very professionally delivered presentation and workshop explaining their new online venture B.O.L.D. (Building products On Line Directory) which aims to build on the excellent Q-Deck merchant partner concept that has worked so well for us at Forestrall Timber & Fencing Merchants….all questions were answered satisfactorily and clearly, such that I had decided to sign up even before leaving the presentation room.”
We have created a sophisticated website for our q-deck online partners to sell their other products alongside our own. We call the facility BOLD for short standing for building products online directory.
The facility cleverly allows both Hoppings and a partners other products to co-exist in the same website but managed separately. Both Hoppings and partners other products are displayed within a pre-determined suite of building products menus that have been carefully designed to be easy on the eye and intuitive to find product.
Hoppings give partners access to their own personal area where they can add and manage their products. We believe we have made a market leading e-commerce tool that is incredibly simple to use. Partners don’t have to create a category into which to place a product as the facility is pre-populated with over 800 categories with specially designed imagery.
So customers ‘be BOLD we think we have been’
Quality Decking and the Hoppings team have been doing Movember, we are now half way through November and everyone’s moustaches are coming on quite nicely.

Latham’s makes it a hat-trick at TTJ Awards
James Latham pic has won the TTJ Timber Trader of the Year Award for the third consecutive year – and for the seventh time since the Awards started in 1997. Director Nick Latham was presented with the trophy at the TTJ Awards lunch at London’s Savoy Hotel on September 14. Around 330 guests attended and the host speaker was TV presenter and Lord Sugar’s right- hand man on The Apprentice, Nick Hewer, who revealed a timber trade link when he showed a video clip of him transporting a Wadkin woodworking machine to a carpentry shop in Africa. “James Latham is delighted to have won the TTJ Timber Trader of the Year Award for the third consecutive year,” said Peter Latham, Latham’s chairman. “I am exceptionally proud of this accomplishment, which is testament to the continuing hard work and dedication of the entire workforce.”
Hoppings Softwood Products also had a successful day, winning two categories in the judged awards – Excellence in Marketing and Website of the Year (for its decking website www.qualitydecking.co.uk). This represented the first time in the TTJ Awards history that a company had won two judged awards in the same year.
Hoppings’ marketing and technical director Adam Pulfer said the double win showed a small, independent timber importer “punching above its weight”.
“We always knew we were onto something special with our e-commerce merchant partnering strategy but to be recognised as the best by an independent panel of judges for both Excellence in Marketing and Website of the Year tops it all.
“It is really satisfying to have ‘done the double’ but it doesn’t come without a load of hard work by many people.”
Other winners were Arbor Forest Products for Softwood Trader of the Year; Timbmet for Hardwood Trader of the Year; Meyer Timber for Panels Trader of the Year; and International Plywood (Importers) for Plywood Trader of the Year. Horndon Timber Products scooped the Small Timber Business of the Year Award.
The two winners of the Career Development Award were W Howard’s John Critchley in the under-25 trainee category and Howarth Timber Group’s Peter Kelly in the over-25 category.
Timber Innovation was won by Sherpa Connection Systems; Soil Association Woodmark won the Environmental Achievement Award; and Stora Enso was rewarded with the Achievement in Engineered Timber Award.
TTJ Awards sponsors included Lonza Wood Protection; Progressive Solutions; Coillte Panel Products; W Howard; Combilift; SCA Timber Supply; TRADA Technology and Timber Expo; Osmose; Daltons Wadkin; Metsa Wood; Snows Timber; and English Woodlands Timber.
