Established in 1757, James Latham is the UK’s biggest independent importer and distributor of panel products, hardwood, joinery-quality softwood, performance doors, solid surface, cladding and decking.
Latham’s wide-ranging portfolio includes some of the most recognised brands in the world, many of them on an exclusive or semi-exclusive basis, all from a single source and available nationwide, thanks to its 10-strong network of depots.
James Latham’s commitment to environmental best practice is paramount.
The company will only source materials from suppliers who are operating within the laws of their own country and with growing public awareness of environmental issues and many customers specifically requesting certified timber, it has made positive moves towards stocking products exclusively originating from sustainable and correctly managed forests, in particular FSC® and PEFC® certified products.
The company was also the first signatory to the TTF’s Responsible Purchasing Policy and all 10 depots are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC®) certified.
