Harlow Timber Systems Keeps Expanding

Harlow Timber Systems continues to expand in response to the significant uplift in the trussed rafter and metal web floor market.

The expansion includes new staff as well as new appointments, a large investment in a new fleet and the opening of another premises purely for production purposes.

The new factory will be based at Bardon Hill Coalville, just yards away from our existing head office. The additional 10,000 sq/ft will help with the production of metal web joists on a new Uni Roll 75-Birch Press and spandrel panels for the housing market. The new unit will also produce our feature Oak and Douglas Fir products.

In addition, investment is also being made at the HTS headquarters in extra pressing equipment which will be dedicated to the manufacture of timber roof trusses.

There has also been a need to expand the fleet with purchase of two new forklift trucks and two new 7.5 tonne lorries.

David Stockill, Managing Director said: " This expansion marks an important step in Harlow Timber Systems Limited development as a company, we have worked hard to weather the downturn in the building industry and felt this was the right time to invest with the industry recovery.
