From Forest to Frame – Wood for Good

BACK TO BLOG MAIN PAGE

Currently, most structural glulam timber used in the UK is imported from other European countries – mostly from Germany, Austria and Sweden. Whilst there are a number of independent British companies who have the capability of making small quantities of bespoke glulam. Buckland Timber is the only UK company capable of manufacturing glulam on a scale that makes our products competitive with imports.

Buckland Timber was established in 2012. The partnership was set up by Bill Blight, Ralph and Robin Nicholson, with the purpose of producing a UK grown (and manufactured) sustainable alternative to European imported glulam. Bill Blight and Ralph Nicholson both own and manage forestry in the South-West. The impetus for establishing Buckland Timber was their desire to make better use of their own harvested, high-quality timber and other high-end timber also found within the South West.

Our closely linked design and manufacturing services give us a unique capability to explore the options available for your prospective timber structure and ensure that our solutions are tailored to your specific needs.
