Can you stump SR Timber?

SR Timber is throwing down the gauntlet to visitors attending this year’s RCI Show in a challenge to highlight that there isn’t a single thing that it doesn’t know about timber roofing battens.

The team on stand C11 will be inviting visitors of the show at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry to stump SR Timber in a light-hearted quiz aimed at demonstrating the breadth and depth of knowledge from the company.

Jason Lumley from SR Timber is confident that there won’t be a question about roofing battens that the team can’t answer and, according to Lumley, in the unlikely event that a visitor does out-smart the company, he will buy them their lunch.

Jason said: “We’re all really excited about attending the RCI Show this year because we’re taking a bigger stand than we did last year. As part of our discussions around the planning for it, we got talking about our level of knowledge within the industry.

“When we added it up, between us, we have decades of experience in the timber roofing batten industry, and there’s nothing we don’t know – which is where the idea to stump SR Timber came from.

“Trying to stump SR Timber will be good fun for visitors to the RCI 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.”

Trading director, Shaun Revill, added that Stump SR Timber will be good fun and a great opportunity to invite people onto the SR Timber stand at the show – but the challenge underlines a more serious point.

“There have been a lot of big changes in our industry over the past couple of years, 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 to try to stump SR Timber, as 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.”
