NATIONAL Timber Group has has announced it has almost doubled the size of its operation in Grangemouth.

The Forth Valley timber processing plant has become the national production centre for the Scottish division, serving Thornbridge and Rembrand branches from an expanded six-acre site. The firm said this facility will strengthen its offering and support the roll-out of new branches.

Included in the expansion strategy has been the construction of a 21,500 sq ft storage facility unit.

National Timber Group was formed in 2018 following the investment in timber companies Arnold Laver, Rembrand, North Yorkshire Timber, Thornbridge, and most recently Cotswold Manufacturing, by Cairngorm Capital. The group has a combined annual turnover of £250 million.

Alex McLeod, managing director of National Timber Group (Scotland), said, “This significant level of investment is testimony to our commitment to the Scottish market, which continues to offer real opportunity for our business. The expansion of the national production centre at Grangemouth signifies the next step in our strategy to provide our customers across Scotland with the best quality timber, sheet and joinery products on short lead times whilst supporting our supply chain partners and creating new jobs.”

National Timber Group now has 30 branches across Scotland.
