Harlow Bros Ltd who have been established for over 90 years are a family run business specialising in all aspects of timber, from softwoods to hardwoods, sheet materials to decking & fencing and joinery timbers to doors and windows. Harlow’s also manufacture poultry houses, stables and sheds. 

Some 18 years ago, Harlow’s became a key player in the Engineered Timber market and now offer ‘Engineered’ I Joists and Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) manufactured by Steico, along with fabricating roof trusses.


Backed by a dedicated team of specialist design engineers, Steico design software packages and fabricating teams, Harlow’s supply I joist floor and roof packages & floor cassettes to many national, regional and local house builders such as William Davis, Bellway Homes, Bloor Homes and Keepmoat to name a few.


To reinforce their commitment to the Engineered Wood Products market, Harlow’s acquired Bolt Building Supplies of Halsted – now known as Harlow’s Timber Systems (Eastern). Harlow’s converted this once multi-disciplined merchant and transformed the site into solely providing engineered flor, roofs and panels to the building industry.

In a drive to ensure best site practice, Harlow’s have developed a number of theory and practical hands-on training courses aimed at ‘Warranty’ providers such as the NHBC and House Builders alike.  The aim is to drive out common installation errors on-site, not just by the installation carpenters, but from the ‘follow-on’ trades too.   The courses ensure that the House Builder and warranty provider are working to the same standards when installing engineered floor sets. These courses have proven to be a great success as the number of remedial / aftercare calls Harlow’s receive has dramatically reduced.
