National Timber Group doubles in Grangemouth

National Timber Group has doubled the size of its Grangemouth site.

The group’s processing plant in Forth Valley now totals six acres and becomes the main production site in Scotland. The expansion includes the construction a 21,500sq ft storage facility, enabling the company to increase the level of stock it can store on-site.

“National Timber Group started in Scotland with the acquisition of timber merchant Thornbridge so it is a natural progression to further our vision of expanding north of the Border,” said chief executive Rob Barclay.

“The investment will help the group achieve our overall vision of spearheading the timber market within Scotland, and the UK”.
