Howarth Timber Group Ltd is the UK's largest privately owned timber company. The company's origins can be traced back to 1840 when it began trading as Hudson & Co.
Over the years Howarth Timber Group has expanded from a one man company to an employer of more than 1,000 people. Today, it encompasses a network of 28 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.
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.
