Timbacore's origin dates back as far as 1998, whereby the owner, Nathaniel Roberts – with 15 years experience in the timber environment and related products – started off.
Originally Timbacore started off with the main focus on Installations with only four staff members.
In 2001 a new era for Timbacore started as the Shop was opened in upper Durban Road (Tygervalley area), where timber products, such as poles, loose timber, trellises, fencing panels, garden edging, railway sleepers, etc were on offer to clients.
This Shop grew rapidly and even within two years, new premises were required as the one of 500 square meters was too small. Timbacore then moved to a new premises covering an amazing 2 500 square meters (Bella Rosa, Durbanville). This was of short due, for new developments within the Durbanville area again forced Timbacore to look for new premises.
By then management has seen this as an enormous challenge, due to the fact that the Factory, then situated in Blackheath and the installation Department in Maitland, also needed to be moved onto one premises. This was all done to ensure a one-stop experience for Timbacore customers.
As from 1 May 2008 Timbacore functions at 15 Farad Street (end of Farad Street), Stikland on a property of just below 10 000 square meters, where everything is still under one roof: the Shop and DIY Department, Manufacturing Department and the Installation Department.
A convenient Coffee Shop & Take Aways was added in 2007 where customers, while shopping can enjoy a great cup of coffee / tea with refreshments.
