After 48 years working in the timber industry, 22 as the Managing Director of DWB Anglia, we are both saddened and pleased to announce that Trevor Tween is retiring.

Trevor formed DWB Anglia as a member company within the DWB Group banner in 1996 following a career in the timber and later the trussed rafter industry. His former employment in the trussed rafter sector goes back via John Sadd & Sons Limited, Bolton and Paul Limited, HSJ, International Timber, Meyer International and Anglian Timber. Wherever he worked and whatever he did he was a well-respected member within the company and the industry at large.

After 9 years at the Blackwater Trading Estate at Maldon, DWB Anglia was confident and strong enough to purchase an acre of land at Latchingdon and create a purpose-built factory for the manufacture of Trusses and open web Joists. From there on the company under Trevor’s stewardship has gone from strength to strength.

In a short speech Trevor said:

“Today marks the end of a long journey for me having spent the last 48 years in the trussed rafter industry, with the last 22 years as managing director of DWB Anglia Ltd the time has come for me to retire. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the industry and would thank you all for your support during that time. I hope you will continue to support the team at DWB Anglia in the days and years ahead.

A retirement that was made even better after hearing the day before that Pam, my wife, was told her cancer had gone. What a wonderful retirement present. I have now been in remission for nearly two years so we can look forward to the future together.

My son Andy Tween will be taking the helm at DWB Anglia as the new managing director and I wish him every success as he takes up the reigns.”.

Andy added:

“Big shoes to fill. Trevor will be missed by the group and the industry……but we are proud of the team you have built.”

A farewell event was held last week at the Latchingdon office and at Boreham for a luncheon, with employees and others traveling from each of our branches to pass on their regards and best wishes.
