Orchard Timber Products joins NTG

Published on :Saturday, November 20, 2021

The National Timber Group (NTG) continues expansion plans with an all-new decision of taking over the Scottish distributor Orchard Timber Products Ltd.

With shared customer service values, this acquisition fulfils two strategic objectives for NTG. Geographically, it complements NTG’s footprint by extending its presence into West Lothian and up the North East coast of Scotland, filling gaps in the Group’s branch network. Secondly, Orchard Timber’s strengths in wood flooring provide NTG with a highly complementary extension to its existing product range.

Orchard Timber joins NTG’s Scottish division and will continue to trade under its successful trading name and brand. Scott McKinlay, Kevin Golder, and Stuart Fraser, Orchard Timber’s owners, will remain in the business, working with Nick Ratcliffe, Managing Director of NTG’s Scottish division, to ensure its smooth integration into the Group and to realise the opportunities that this transaction offers for future growth.

Orchard Timber, established in 2004, is a specialist distributor of timber, sheet materials, kitchens, doors, wood flooring, and decking, supplying a range of local housebuilders, contractors, and RMI-focused joiners. Orchard Timber is the national distribution partner for Kährs Flooring and Kährs’ largest stockist in the UK, carrying over 20,000m2 of wood flooring at any given time. Headquartered in Forfar, Scotland, the company has a second depot in Livingston and a sales office in Aberdeen.
