About Us

"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 to 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. As a timber importing and bespoke wood machinist firm in the United Kingdom, we take great pride in being part of a thriving industry that caters to the diverse needs of joiners, builders, craftsmen, and enthusiasts. Our business combines expertise in sourcing the finest timber from around the world with advanced machinery to produce made to order timber products tailored to the unique requirements of our customers. Timber Sourcing and Importing Ramsay Timber relies on a robust network of suppliers across the globe to acquire the highest quality timber available. We have spent years establishing relationships with sustainable forestry operations, ensuring that the timber we import is legally harvested, certified, and meets all environmental regulations. It's important to us as a business that the timber we work with comes from responsible sources. Bespoke Wood Machining At the heart of the business lies our state-of-the-art machinery and skilled workforce. Equipped with advanced wood machining equipment, we have the ability to transform raw timber into a wide range of custom wood products. From mouldings and intricate profiles to precision-cut joinery components. Using computer-aided design (CAD) software, we collaborate closely with our customers to create precise and detailed product specifications. Supporting Sustainability Sustainability and environmental responsibility are at the core of our business values. We actively seek out suppliers who share our commitment to sustainable forestry practices. By promoting the use of responsibly sourced timber, we contribute to the preservation of global forests and reduce the ecological impact of the industry. It's important to us that we leave a positive impact on the environment for future generations.
