THE JR Group has announced the launch of a new timber kit division.

DC Timber Systems has been incorporated into the group, which already includes JR Construction, JR Specialist Services, JR Scaffold Services and JR Commercial Property Services.

The firm said the investment is designed to offer a ‘more rounded’ service to clients. The new business will be operated from Palmermount Industrial Estate in Dundonald, Ayrshire and is expected to create 25 new jobs in the coming months.

Heading up the new division is MD Ian Samson. He said, “Despite the current climate, The JR Group is continuing to invest. Expanding our business through the creation of a timber kit division is a pivotal step in driving our growth for the years ahead.

“Timber frame is widely regarded as one of the fastest-paced sectors in the UK. There is a real requirement for good, high quality, timber kit product, which can be delivered quickly and we are confident DC Timber Systems can meet this need.

“DC Timber Systems will provide a key service for our construction arm, and by manufacturing the products ourselves, this will allow us to be more competitive and offer a better service to our partners. It will also give us greater control of our overall project program and should negate any delays on site.”
