About Us

Global Timber Products Ltd was formed in October 2009.

Headed up by Ian Freeman, Managing Director and Robert Grant, Sales Director whom between them have over 60 years experience in the specialist softwood and hardwood trade.

Our company ethos is to offer a solution to your timber needs. During their careers the Directors have worked hard to build a reputation for integrity with independent and national merchants, the joinery trade and the general public.

Located on a four acre site in Hixon near Stafford, our site incorporates 16,000 square feet of machining space, along with both covered and uncovered timber storage enabling us to keep extensive stocks of clear grade softwoods and hardwoods.

We offer a full machining and coating facility on all timber products, many of which are kept in stock for immediate delivery.

Our services include our own in-house manufacturing (two 6 head Weinig moulders, spindle moulders, thicknesser/planer, crosscut etc.), machining/profiling section sizes up to 150 x 250, manufacturing standard (cladding, skirtings, architraves etc) and bespoke mouldings, all cutters produced in our own toolroom

Global Timber Products Ltd is a responsible purchaser of timber and has achieved Chain of Custody status with PEFC, and we are therefore able to meet your requirements with regards to responsibly sourced, sustainable materials.

We are able to machine both softwoods and hardwoods to any given profile that you may require, give us a sample or drawing of your requirements and we will do the rest. We are able to deliver these specials usually within 7-10 working days.

On all stock items delivery is 24/48 hours from order. We aim to source any timber that you require – you name it we’ll find it.
