In The Hot Seat – With Josh Sambrook-Jones of Clifford Jones Timber

Name: Josh Sambrook – Jones

Married/Children? Engaged to Fiancée Hannah

Position/Company Area Sales Manager at Clifford Jones Timber

 Previous Employment – I’ve been working for Clifford Jones for as long as I can remember, I used to come in on Saturdays and run the peeler & run up the mountains of chip!

What do you consider the main issues affecting the fencing and landscaping industry?

I would say the biggest issue affecting the fencing and landscaping industry is the lack of knowledge regarding timber treatment from foreign imports – nothing leaves our gates without the correct treatment process. We work closely with Lonza to ensure our treatment is of the best standards in the market place.

What’s been your best idea?

Releasing Clifford Jones’s own Platinum brand of square warranted timbers and our own range of sleepers & landscaping materials.

And you’re worst

Not learning to play Golf earlier in life.
