A family business established in 1947, Hardwood Dimensions at this time was an amalgamation of three family timber trading companies. As part of the war effort, during the Second World War, all similar timber trading companies were instructed by the Timber Control of Great Britain to conduct their businesses in co-operation with each other and shortly after the war finished, Hardwood Dimensions Limited was formed. Two of the three families involved in the creation of Hardwood Dimensions in 1947, are still active in the management of the business today.
Did you know?
The main business of the company in 1947 was to supply textile shuttle block manufacturers with Persimmon and Hornbeam. Since the decline of the textile business during the 50’s and 60’s the company expanded into supplies of other specialist timbers for example in the manufacture of tool handles in Ash and Hickory.
Since then Hardwood Dimensions have followed the trend of specialist timber supply as the markets have demanded and have supplied quality hardwood for many different applications.
Increasingly producers and customers alike have become more aware of their responsibility to ensure all timber products used are sourced legally and harvested sustainably. While certification is not possible in all areas of the world, wherever possible we source timber from mills whose responsibility matches our own.
Many of our European timbers and selected North American Hardwoods are available with FSC Certification. We actively encourage our suppliers worldwide to seek certification, deliberately forming relationships where timber is produced with respect and consideration for the local environment and population. We are registered for the storage and distribution of FSC Chain of Custody (COC) certified timbers and timber products. Find out more information here.
