“We strive for the best quality, service and price for our customers every time

The above is a quotation from our founder Mr. RG Ramsay, when he first started Ramsay Timber in 1978. His first priority was put customers first and this certainly hasn’t changed. We pride ourselves as one of the few remaining family run timber businesses in the North West, offering our customers a service that is second to none.

timber stock


We import extensive stocks of top quality hardwood and softwood. We are dedicated to sourcing the best quality and price then pass this on to our customers. Click on our Stock page to find out more, we are always on hand to offer our experience and knowledge.



We have a comprehensive milling and machining facility featuring the latest Weinig moulders. We offer a range of standard sections and profiles or we can machine to the customers own bespoke patterns.



Our on site laminating facility enables us to provide customers both softwood and hardwood laminated products. The lamination process offers stability in the section size and allows the manufacture of wide section sizes that would normally prove troublesome in solid timber form. These sections are popular for window boards and stair manufacture.



We are able to provide customers with a Pre-vac treatment. It is a wood preservative that protects against deterioration due to termites and fungal decay. We can also offer priming and lacquering, which our sales team would be happy to assist you with should it be of interest.

timber transport


The transport team co-ordinate our fleet of vehicles to travel around the North West, North East, North Wales and Cumbria and the Midlands. This enables us to provide a prompt delivery service wherever you’re based.

sustainable forest


To ensure we have an acceptable policy for the environment, it is a requirement that our suppliers source raw material from managed forests. These forests must be committed to replanting, harvesting and managing programmes of sustainable ecologically friendly forestry. As a company it is our aim to supply PEFC and FSC® certified timber to all our customers.
