About Us

We are a locally owned builders’ merchant who operate mainly in the South West of Scotland and North of England supplying timber and general building materials to a variety of customers.

DTC Merchants Limited is made up of:

• Ayrshire Building & Timber Supplies

• Dumfries Building Supplies

• Dumfries Timber Company

We are members of the Scottish Timber Trade Association (STTA), the Builders Merchant Federation (BMF), the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), the National Buying Group (NBG), and have a keen interest in developing the young workforce which is recognised by our good practice award with Investors In Young People (IIYP).

Being a member of the National Buying Group consolidates the purchases of 84 independent merchants nationally, enabling members to compete as a national merchant and yet we are proud to be local, working and building relationships within the local community.

Supporting environmental causes relevant to the products we sell is extremely important to us. As such, we hold an ISO14001 accreditation and have both FSC and PEFC certification to ensure the timber and timber related products we sell are sourced from both legal and sustainable sources wherever possible.

Our knowledgeable and friendly staff would love to talk about how we can help with your project, however big or small. How can we help you today?

Latest Covid Update

Latest Covid News - Monday 26th October

In response to Covid-19 we implemented our new ‘Safe Systems of Work Plan’ and ‘Branch Operating Procedures’. This has been in place since we re-opened our branches to our customers. We do ask however that you show some patience and understanding in that we will not be able to provide the full access that we have always operated previously.

To enable maximum efficiency at all branches, we ask that you phone in advance, or use the website to place click and collect orders which will enable our yard and warehouse staff to pre-pick your order and have it ready in the designated area for collection.

Our main priority remains ensuring we protect the health, safety and welfare of our staff, customers, suppliers, and the wider communities in which we operate. We are adapting to the changes necessitated by the COVID-19 virus, but we also realise that this applies to everyone. Should there be anything you believe would improve how we implement our new operating procedures, or that we must equally respect when delivering to your premises, please do contact the Branch Manager of the Branch you deal with.
