Chapter Thirty One
OUT WITH THE OLD IN WITH THE NEW PART 2 chapter 31
Covid brought many challenges but for the Timber Trade it was a godsend on sales and profits for 2019-2022 . The price of wood doubled in 2020-21 as the world demand outstripped supply with everyone on furlough, the sun shone and gardens were the focal point for many. Nicks supplied timber for the construction of a number of Nightingale Hospitals , and the builders were allowed to keep working . Nicks enjoyed its most profitable trading period in its 167 years of trading, and as such have been able to reinvest heavily in its plant and equipment securing all its needs for the the next decade . Old Mr Nicks out New Mr Nicks in as the face of our new online store and App https://www.nickstimberstore.co.uk/
Old low pressure treatment tank out new high pressure tank in . New computerised Board saw for panel cutting and a new computerised Cross Cut . And a fully revamped Landscaping - Decking - Fencing Centre. Two New wagons , Three new Side-loaders. Should see us through to 2035 . Oh and a new lease on the site to 2050 which should see me out ! So one last chapter to come giving details of the plans for 2022/23 I hope you have enjoyed hearing about Nicks Past as we now once more look to Nicks future .
