With 31 timber and builders’ merchant branches nationwide, Howarth Timber & Building Supplies is dedicated to helping you get the job done quickly, easily
With 180 years’ trading experience, the Howarth Timber Group has grown to provide not only the widest range of products but expertise, service and knowledge you can rely on.
Now the UK’s largest privately-owned timber company, our origins can be traced back to 1840 when we commenced trading as Hudson & Co. Over the years the Howarth Timber Group has expanded from a one-man company to an employer of more than 1,000 people specialists who know the industry inside out.
Today, the Howarth Timber Group encompasses a network of 30 timber and builders’ merchant branches geographically spread across the country, complemented by dedicated manufacturing divisions supplying class-leading windows and doors and highly specialist timber engineering products and services. Self-builders are not forgotten – our unique position means we can provide detailed advice, support and an unparalleled range of products.
The group has achieved Chain of Custody certification covering all divisions, proving compliance with government specifications for timber sourced from legal and well-managed sources. The accreditation also confirms that the company meets the requirements of the construction industry’s independent third party audit organisations. We work consistently to reduce the impact our activities has on current and future generations.
With a continued clear focus, the Howarth Timber Group is proud of its place at the very forefront of its industry.
