Whatever the size of the customer, AJW Distribution always goes that extra mile to satisfy the customer's requirements with a sharp focus on product quality and service.

Established in 1999, AJW Distribution has built a reputation for offering a great personal service and is able to negotiate competitive prices for all its high quality products. Over this period, the company has now established three branches in East Anglia; the Head Office and largest of the three is based in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, the second in central Norwich opened in 2002 on the site previously occupied by another distributor. The third site opened in 2007 and is based in Witham, Essex. Our newest depot to add to our portfolio has opened in Sawston, Cambridge this month November 2014. AJW Distribution has matured to become one of the region's largest and most trusted distributors of roofing and cladding materials for the industrial, agricultural and domestic markets.

By being a privately owned firm, AJW Distribution has been successful during difficult economic times. This has been largely due to the quality of the staff employed, each one being handpicked for their long experience in the distribution and fitting of roofing products.

Managing Director's Profile:

AJW Distribution is owned and managed by Alan Woods, he is well known in the industry for his experience and knowledge that spans five decades.
Alan started his career in the roofing industry with Atlas Asbestos (now Marley Eternit) as a junior in the sales department. His drive and high standard of work was recognised and was promoted to Sales Office Manager where he remained for several years. In 1977 he was head-hunted by another roofing distributor and offered the position of Branch Manager at their new depot in Peterborough. Recognising this to be a good opportunity, Alan took the position and then proceeded to make the depot very successful. Alan was then approached in 1983 to help start Lynfox, this went on to become a well respected distribution company in the roofing industry. Alan then started AJW Distribution as a partnership in 1999, he acquired his partner's shareholding in 2002 and has been responsible for driving the company forward ever since.
