Timbmet's phenomenal success owes much to the vision of Ludwig Kemp, the Czechoslovakian timber and metal merchant who founded the business in 1942. His enduring passion for wood as a raw material inspires the ethos of the company to this day, which, with Ludwig’s son Dan at the helm, has grown into a multi-million pound, internationally recognised, environmentally conscientious and endlessly innovative enterprise.

Whilst the sourcing, purchasing, kilning, storage, selection and delivery of timber is still very much at the core of the business, over the years Timbmet has mushroomed into a global market leader offering one of the largest product ranges in Europe. The shrewd acquisition of pertinent businesses all over the country has given us strength, diversity and increased speed of delivery. We are immensely proud of our ever-growing and unique range of manufactured panels, doors and doorblanks, decking, flooring, window components and machined sections. And when we can’t source a product, we invent it – our innovative timber solutions draw on our years of experience, and all manufacturing services can be offered in-house. In fact, our reputation for imaginative thinking has evolved into an eminent consultative service through which we advise on high-profile, challenging construction projects; our expertise is a saleable, sought-after resource.

This dedication to on-going development – accompanied by a commitment to improving industry standards as a whole – has won us several awards over the last few years, including General Trader of the Year, Hardwood Trader of the Year, Panel Product Trader of the Year and, most prestigiously, Timber Trader of the Year. Although delighted to have been recognised, we do not rest on our laurels and continue to strive towards advancing our technology whilst sharing our experience both internally and with our partners and customers. Our unique Centre of Excellence was developed to increase understanding of the issues surrounding timber supply management and use, because we feel strongly about our responsibilities and because ultimately, we love the raw material as much as our founder did.
