The successful Timbercity brand was initially established in 1974 by two independent entrepreneurs in Parow, Cape Town. In 2004 the Steinhoff group gained ownership of Timbercity through its acquisition of PG Bison, and their retail arm, SteinBuild, was born. SteinBuild now forms part of the JD Group, with Steinhoff being the majority shareholder.
Timbercity outlets stock a wide range of products, from timber, boards and shelving, to kitchen hardware and accessories, worktops, joinery, mouldings and building materials.
Our skilled staff and suppliers put us in a position to be able to offer customers expert advice and product knowledge with regards to the customers’ project queries.
Our expert cut-shops also provide specialised services including cutting, edging and drilling.
A number of the Timbercity branches also boast a design centre where custom-designs can be created to the customer’s unique style and taste.
Timbercity offers training to franchisees prior, during and post opening and throughout on-going store operation. With years of industry knowledge, we have differentiated ourselves as market leaders in our industry. Our staff are key to delivering our offering, therefore we make sure they have the necessary tools to perform their duties.
Our franchise operators are dedicated to customer service excellence, and should have a good understanding of retail in their prospective market places. The operators will be required to focus on staff development and have a hands on approach to their business.
