Customer Spotlight: Champion Timber

“Datanet offers a highly flexible and personal hosting service,” reports Neil Sperring, IT Technical Manager at logo-champion-timberChampion Timber, “in fact we know almost all their staff on first name terms.”

With nine branches and over 80 years experience of supplying the building trade, Champion is the South East’s leading independent timber specialist. Regularly voted one of the UK’s top-performing timber merchants by TRADA (The Timber Research and Development Association), the company sources, machines and sells timber and timber products – decking, fencing, flooring and doors – and a range of related purchases from power tools to paint.

timberSuch a vast range of products –  10,000 in total, 2,000 of which are available to order online – plus regulatory requirements from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) make Champion Timber’s hosting requirements, like all of Datanet’s customers’, unique.

And they’re happy that we’ve risen to the challenge.  “I was impressed from day one, when we were given a full tour of the facility and Health & Safety induction before committing to the contract,” Neil explains.  “I’ve also been especially pleased with the flexibility around access to the data centre, their assistance liaising with our contractors and the promptness of technical support.”
