National Timber Group acquires SV Timber

In a move that further extends its geographic presence in the Midlands, National Timber Group (NTG) has acquired SV Timber.

NTG was created through the acquisitions of Thornbridge, NYTimber, Rembrand and Arnold Laver between 2017-2018, and this latest move is described as the next “big step forward in NTG’s drive to be the largest independent specialist timber processing and distribution group in the UK, with a focus on value-added products and solutions”.

SV Timber is said to fill a geographic gap in NTG’s existing branch network and further extends its customer reach within the Midlands. This follows the acquisition of Orchard Timber in late 2021 and the development of specialist business units National Timber Systems (NTS) and Intelligent Door Solutions (IDS), “further building NTG’s capabilities to help the nation build better with sustainable timber products and services”.

Established in 2004, SV Timber is a specialist independent timber merchant supplying an extensive range of timber materials to a broad range of trade and commercial customers, including joiners and manufacturers, from three branches across the East Midlands in Derbyshire and Leicester. The company has a “strong reputation for outstanding service and quality that is well aligned with NTG” and recently supplied the timber for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The company’s former directors will remain in the business, working closely with Patrick Guest, Managing Director of NTG England, to ensure a smooth integration into the Group and to “realise the full potential of the opportunities that this partnership offers for future growth”. By joining the Group, the customers of SV Timber will also now enjoy access to a broader range of products and services, including national delivery capability, bespoke timber production, door-set manufacturing, and engineered roofing systems.

Ed Holder, Managing Director of SV Timber, said: “When the opportunity arose to join the National Timber Group, we were really pleased to find we share the same passion and vision to drive the business forward.  The scale and capability of the Group will help us to strengthen what we do and allow us to further improve the value we can deliver to our customers.”

NTG’s Patrick Guest added: “As a specialist added-value timber distributor, we are absolutely delighted to welcome SV Timber to the Group – our shared expertise and commitment to our customers makes this a great partnership. Together, we will extend our range of services and capability in the region, further improving our customers’ experience.”
