Gowan Lea TimbersAward Winner

It’s official – Gowan Lea Timbers is the Best Timber Merchant in Queensland!!

Gowan Lea Timbers has just been awarded the “Best Timber Merchant” in QLD at the recent Queensland Timber Industry Awards!

This is quite a prestigious industry award and hotly contested.

The judges obviously liked what they saw and I think were pleased to see a family owned and independent merchant like us holding our own against the multi-national timber and hardware giants.

Reflecting on how we got to this point, I could point to all the investments we’ve made – to our yard and office, plant and equipment, marketing and advertising, IT systems etc, etc, but I think it’s our people that are our greatest asset and by far the single biggest factor in winning this award.

Let’s face it, we’re all basically selling the same stuff, so our only point of difference is the personal relationships we have with our customers and the quality service we continually strive to offer you.

As a business owner, the only way to achieve this is by surrounding yourself with great people.

Thanks to all our loyal customers for your support of the last 6 years!
