Get your hardwoods, fast
Our milling facilities are situated strategically across the UK – in Scotland, Manchester, Wales and London – to ensure that our customers are never far from their deliveries. Similarly, we run a 7-day a week operation, meaning that once your order is placed, there will be a team of experienced professionals working on it almost immediately.
What this essentially means is that we offer an incredibly fast turnaround – we’re aware of the time sensitive nature of construction and joinery projects so we make sure that we don’t act as a bottleneck.
Back to basics
As fast paced as the timber and construction industries are evolving, there is still a marketplace need for the basics – including sawn lumber.
The most common type of timber cut, our hardwood sawn lumber can be used for beams, joists or rafters due to their hard-wearing, stiff nature. So, if you’re after high-quality, sustainably sourced, sawn lumber, International Timber is the hardwood expert you need.
Serving the environment
Timber is considered one of the most favourable construction materials available, and because of this it’s of utmost of importance that it’s harvested sustainably, with environmental nurturing and growth in mind.
At International Timber we operate within Saint Gobain’s Policy for Sustainability. This policy holds us accountable for all timber sourced and ensures that the work we carry out daily has minimal impact on the environment and is economically efficient.
