SR Timber is challenging visitors at this November’s RCI Show to ask them something they don’t know about roofing battens!
The team on stand C11 aim to show visitors of the show at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry that there isn’t a thing they don’t know about timber roofing battens in a light-hearted quiz.
Jason Lumley from SR Timber is confident there won’t be a question about roofing battens that the team can’t answer – and in the unlikely event that a visitor does out-fox one of the team, he will buy them a bite to eat!
“We’re all really excited about attending the RCI Show, it’s an important event for our industry and a great chance for us to meet customers, both new and old. We’re taking a bigger stand this year, as we have a lot to tell people about and as part of our discussions around the planning, we got talking about our level of knowledge,” said Jason.
“When we added it up, between us, we have decades of experience in timber roofing batten, and we decided that there’s nothing we don’t know about roofing batten! And that’s where the idea to ‘Stump SR Timber’ came from.
Trying to Stump SR Timber will be good fun for visitors to the show – although it does heap a bit more pressure on us, as we’re now trying to think of the most obscure questions we could possibly get asked… we don’t want to get caught out!”
Trading Director Shaun Revill explained that Stump SR Timber will be good fun and a great opportunity to invite people onto the SR Timber stand at the show – however the challenge underlines a more serious point.
“There have been a lot of big changes in our industry over the past couple of years – with many changes being specific to roofing batten, and it’s actually been very beneficial for us because SR Timber has really come to the fore as an expert in timber roofing batten,” said Shaun.
“We realised how much of our time is spent as a business being a first port of call in providing a range of information and technical knowledge to individuals and organisations right across the industry, because this simply isn’t available elsewhere.
We’re really looking forward to the RCI Show and I’m looking forward to seeing people challenging Jason and the rest of the team whilst they try to Stump SR Timber. It’ll be a great benchmark of just how far the team and company have come from a company that started from scratch 12 years ago.”
