NORclad has become the latest specialist timber products business to join National Timber Group (NTG). This is the most recent in a series of acquisitions to further strengthen the Group’s position as the UK’s largest, independent, specialist timber processing and distribution group with a focus on value-added products. This announcement follows the recent acquisition of SV Timber in the Midlands, which joined NTG in September 2022.
Headquartered in North Somerset, NORclad is a specialist manufacturer and supplier of bespoke fire-rated timber cladding, facades and other timber products used by commercial and residential customers nationally. With over 40 years of experience, the company prides itself on the sustainability of its products and the expert technical support that it provides to its customers.
NORclad’s shareholders will remain in the business, working closely with Patrick Guest, Managing Director of NTG England, to further develop NTG’s fire-rated timber cladding category and realise the opportunities presented by this partnership.
Alistair Brown, managing director of NORclad, said: “As the founder of the company I am very proud of the NORclad team and what we have achieved. When we knew the time was right to move the business on by joining forces with a larger organisation our aim was to find a suitable partner that shared our passion and goals. With National Timber Group, we have found the right people with the same values as us – a continual focus on the customer and the drive to constantly improve. I look forward to the business continuing to grow and develop.’’
Patrick Guest, National Timber Group managing director for England, added: “As a specialist, added-value timber manufacturer and distributor, we are absolutely delighted to welcome NORclad to NTG. They will add to what we can do as a Group and are a great example of the type of business we want to partner with. They have an outstanding reputation in our sector and work hard to deliver great customer service.’’
