We also supply bespoke oak products and are happy to hear about your enquiry whether it's a porch, feature trusses or in regard to an oak structural project.

History

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 high significant growth in business output, and such was the demand for our engineered timber products that 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.

Offering the complete engineered package from specialist design service to supply and erection, Harlow Timber Systems Limited are able to design and manufacture engineered products for the most complex building & construction requirements.

Since the opening of the Kettering plant, Harlow Timber Systems has over the last 10 years continued to invest in the business. With the demand for our products continuing to grow it was decided to invest in a production facility at Burton Upon Trent in 2014. Our Burton facility features  two 2 factories providing 20,000 sq./ft and housing 4 press stations. In addition the plant enjoys the benefit of a 4 blade saw, Randek single blade and Posi Joist manufacturing machinery. The location of the facility was a strategic move to service our client base in the West Midlands.

Our new facilities have afforded us the ability to increase production in our full range of roof trusses, Posi Joist and Spandrel Panels and has seen us increase our market share considerably over the conventional joist market.

In 2016 Harlow Timber Systems invested further in our capabilities with a 14,000sq/ft unit at our Bardon base that is dedicated to the production of specialised Feature Oak and the ever growing Spandrel panel and Gable panel market. This unit was installed with the new AV Birch 450 Posi Joist press, cranes and table press for the Spandrel Panel frames.

This investment was soon followed in 2017 by the purchase of 2 more units covering 18,000 sq./ft enabling Harlow Timber Systems to install two more gantry press stations covering 18m, 3 single blade in feed saws and an additional Av Birch 750 Posi joist press.

Harlow Timber Systems Head office also has also benefited from investment in it's operations facility with a new AV Birch Magna Press and an AV Birch Multi head press system installed during 2019.

This substantial investment plan over the last 7 years has not only expanded our production capabilities significantly but in addition our we've invested in our delivery transport fleet to support our increased levels of demand. Harlow Timber systems now have several 7.5 tonne and 12.5 tonne lorries at each site able to deliver products to our nationwide clients at a weeks’ notice.

We are committed to providing the best service and products we can at the best price possible With our customers at the focal point of our business.

With a portfolio of blue chip customers Harlow Timber Systems Limited has experience of producing engineered products for hospitals, nursing homes, schools and offices.

The company’s loyal links with local builders also ensure that the same level of skill and attention is afforded to housing, extension and refurbishment projects.
