What We Do

We have the experience, technical ability and the manufacturing capacity to design timber packaging for any specification. Commonly, we construct crates, pallets, ramps, frames and internal fittings. All of the timber we use is heat treated, dressed and ISPM15-compliant. Our timber is sustainably sourced wherever possible.

Why We Use Timber

Timber is used for shipping heavier or high value products. It is a versatile and cost-effective way to protect our customers’ products. Additionally, because timber is so robust, it can reused for several trips.

Types of Timber

The exact specifications of any product, the timber we choose and the thickness and design, will depend on your requirements.
  • Plywoods
  • OSB
  • Softwoods
  • Hardboards
  • Chipboards


Recently, we have produced a variety of shock-mounted plywood containers with internal racks for an electronics company. We supplied these containers with specialised ramps to facilitate the safe loading and unloading of their packaging and heavy equipment. That is only one example, however. Essentially timber is suitable for any company that requires robust packaging, especially if it’s for international shipping. Here are some of the industries we have serviced:
  • retailers
  • electronic
  • medical
  • defence
  • engineering
  • and more
