Designed to make your life easier

We understand the importance of designs and quotes that are tailored to meet our customers’ specific needs. That is why we have invested significantly in market-leading design, quoting and logistics systems and processes to ensure we deliver exactly what customers want first time.

With over 50 experienced design technicians, we guide customers through the entire design phase to give them peace of mind.


Using legally and sustainability sourced timber

At DTE, we are committed to assessing the environmental impact of our materials and manufacturing methods. We use certified timber in all of our products and work to reduce the environmental impact of construction wherever possible.


We cut hassle, not corners.

We have put a number of significant safety measures in place to prevent the risks associated with unloading trusses. For example, we can supply trusses pre-slung, which means no-one gets on to the lorry to unload. The slings are placed in the correct position in the factory, reducing risks of slingers putting them in the wrong position, and once they are on the roof the slings are cut off.


Assembled with precision and care

Our expert teams across all ten of our sites assemble each and every product with the utmost care, ensuring the same exceptional standards and quality every time.

Each project that we undertake is fully compliant with stringent health and safety standards. Additionally, we are proud to be ISO 9001 accredited, so customers can be sure that all the work we carry out is to the highest standards.


When it comes to timber engineering, we deliver

Our products are made to order and require dimensional and engineering approval prior to manufacture. We work with our customers to agree delivery dates with them based on requirements, potentially avoiding the need for them to store bulky items until ready to install them.

Our regional network of ten branches means that we are able to provide the local service which is backed by national strength.
