Buttle plc is an independent Timber and Builders’ Merchant with branches in London, Enfield, St Albans and Leighton Buzzard. Our roots are in timber (we’ve been selling it since 1919) but today we also sell building materials. We’re also Plumber’s Merchants, trading as PlumbersPal in London and Enfield. Our Head Office is in St Albans, we employ around 60 people and our sales turnover is approaching £15m. We are Investors in People, and several of our employees have worked with us for over 20 years. Our customers include national house builders, local developers, general contractors, public sector organisations and home improvers- in fact, all users of building materials, however large or small. We are long-standing members of the Builders’ Merchants’ Federation and we comply with the BMF Merchant Member Charter. As members of the respected NMBS and h&b buying groups, we are able to purchase materials from the UK’s leading manufacturers at competitive prices. We are skilled at sourcing special items for our customers and always aim to provide the right materials at the right time at the right price. We have a fleet of 10 crane-offloading vehicles, including the latest DAF trucks with remote-controlled cranes. Our normal delivery area includes London, Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire but we can also arrange deliveries direct from the manufacturer to sites throughout the UK.
