Ridgeons Timber and Builders Merchants first started trading with the sale and distribution of timber & sheet materials back in 1911.
More than a century on as timber suppliers, it remains a fundamental part of the business. Founded in 1911 by Cyril Ridgeon at his home in Cambridge, the company’s mission has stayed the same since - to make it easier for their customers to do business. Something which they clearly achieved, going on to trade from over 40 timber and builders merchants branches in East Anglia, UK.
The operation now includes two new Baumann GX50 sideloaders, complete with the award winning Archimedes outreach system, ensuring fine control for the operator. Hydraulic cylinders traditionally drive a sideloader outreach system (the method by which the forks reach out to the load and return it to the load bed) by applying pressure to opposing rollers that slide along their respective channels, in a pantograph-style mechanical linkage.
