About The Harlow Timber Group

Get In TouchVision, Mission & Values

Began by the Harlow family in 1927 as an agricultural manufacturing business for more than 90 years Harlow has been successfully trading within the timber supply & manufacturing industry.

Today the group is made up of divisions & companies that encompass timber supply, engineered timber along with agricultural manufacturing divisions that continue to design, manufacture and install buildings including poultry houses and stables. The Harlow Timber Merchant network supplies timber and associated products to both trade and retail customers from is network of branches in the midlands.

Having acquired H&S Timber Systems in 2001 Harlow's timber manufacturing base diversified further as engineered timber products such as roof trusses & engineered joists were added to the companies portfolio. The businesses growth was considerable and today Harlow Timber Systems (or HTS) operates from four sites across the country.

Harlow has also taken the step of establishing an e commerce string to it's bow that now offers timber and associated products on a national basis through it's digital platform.

The Harlow Timber Group was in family ownership until the first quarter of 2022 when the business was placed into an Employee Ownership Trust. The circumstances of the arrangement mean that the Harlow family will remain with an active input into the business for some years to come and the family ethics that the business was founded upon will continue to be a central part of Harlow's future.

At Harlow we believe that we can be guilty of being our very own best kept secret, and as such we have many clients who have a fantastic relationship with the business for supply of one aspect of our capabilities but might have never realised all of the other services, products and capabilities that our group has. We hope that this site goes some way to helping all of our customers both old and new to make the most of our wide breadth of timber supply and manufacturing services. Harlow has always been a family business built on relationships of trust and with integrity, and whichever part of our business that you decide to trade with you will find the same ethical & easy to do business with theme running through the entire Harlow Group.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about out business and what we do. We very much hope that you enjoy exploring our site and we look forward to hearing from you with your enquiry soon.
