About Us


Acorn ITM

Since 1991

Acorn ITM first opened its doors for trading in October 1991 on a premises situated at Riverlea Road in Hamilton. The late Garry Snowling opened Acorn with a staff of three, determined to build on a slogan “from little things, big things grow” and since then it has only been onwards and upwards for the Acorn ITM team.

In 1993 Acorn joined the Independent Timber Merchant (ITM) group. Acorn ITM was one of the early members of ITM that now stands at over 90 stores nationwide. Being a member of the ITM group not only allows Acorn to source a large variety of building mate­rials at very competitive pricing, but also means business decisions can be made at a store level.

January 2000 saw the business move in to their new premises. With the main goal of the move to provide customers with a “one stop shop”. These new premises include a large hardware showroom and massive 22,000 square foot undercover drive through wallboard.

Acorn ITM is strongly focused on trade, but we pride ourselves on how we work with any customers, including the DIYers. Acorn ITM is very proud of the repeat business it has with its retail customers. Consistently low prices, “specials”, and willingness by all staff to provide the customer the right products, at the right price, with the right advice, ensures customer satisfaction. The staff are always reminded that it is not Acorn paying their wages, but rather every customer that walks through the door. This kind of value placed on each customer is something that Garry had always stressed to every employee.

So come in and see us, no matter how big or small the project.
