Originally we were known as H & S Timber Systems Limited running a modest plant in Bagworth, Leicestershire.

In 2001 we were purchased by Harlow Bros Limited. Their investment in new plant and machinery for the business has seen a doubling of output. Such was the demand we moved to a new purpose built premises at Bardon, Leicestershire in 2004.

In 2009 with demand still on the increase we decided to open a second purpose built plant in Kettering, Northamptonshire.
