Since our beginning in the backroom of Cyril Ridgeon’s home in Cambridge in 1911, RIDGEONS has grown steadily to become one of the UK’s largest independent Timber and Builders Merchants. We are now a fourth generation Family Business with two great grandchildren of Cyril serving as Family Directors of the company.

Our mission remains the same as in Cyril’s day; namely, to make it easier for you to do business. With our support on hand to provide all your building needs quickly and efficiently, we aim to give exceptional customer service and advice at every step.

In the last 100 years our client base has grown to include such diverse sectors as property development, the public sector, farming, exports and DIY. Our commitment to excellent service and to an outstanding width and depth of stock available for collection or delivery remains the same. Our extensive range covers bricks, timber solutions, kitchens and bathrooms, plumbing and heating, through to paints and fixings to meet all your project needs across the eastern region.

Relationships remain the most vital aspect of our business and our company values provide the plumb-line against which we measure all our actions. We are committed to our customers, employees, our suppliers and business partners as well as to the local communities in which we live and trade.
