About AJW Distribution
AJW Distribution Ltd is an independently owned company that supplies roofing, cladding, and general building materials to various contractors, builders, building merchants, and the general public.
At AJW Distribution, we believe that service is the most important part of what we do. As a result, we always go that extra mile to satisfy our customers’ needs and requirements.
We stock a wide range of industry-leading brands, so you can rest assured that product quality is also at the forefront of our mind.
A brief history of AJW
We were established in 1998, and over the years, have proudly built a reputation for offering a great personal service. During this period, the company has established five depots in East Anglia and the surrounding regions. As a result, we serve customers all over the region and further afield with our industrial and agricultural offerings.
Our head office is based in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, and this was our first location. In 2020 we relocated our Chatteris branch to a different Chatteris location, offering a better experience for our customers. Our second branch, in central Norwich, opened in 2002, whilst our third site opened in 2007, based in Witham, Essex. The AJW Roofing portfolio expanded further in November 2014 with Sawston, Cambridge depot and then our Bury St Edmunds depot was opened in July 2018. We have recently added to our portfolio with opening our 6th depot in May 2022 in St Neots.
AJW Distribution is owned and managed by Alan Woods, a well-known figure in the industry whose experience and knowledge spans five decades. (That’s a lot of knowledge!)
After working in various management and executive positions within the roofing industry, Alan established 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.

As a result, each valued member of our team has been handpicked for their long experience in the industry and extensive products.
We have great relationships with our suppliers! As we previously said, we stock and supply roofing and cladding materials from the very best in the industry. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that we are always kept up to date with lead times, new product releases and maintaining great pricing for our customers.
We love to give back!
