Since 1999 I have been working in the oak trade mainly selling green oak beams, and joinery quality boules from some of the best sawmills in France. Due to the ever lasting 2009 recession, I have set up my own company as an agent, ensuring more competitive prices for the English timber trade but also Carpentry and Timber Framing companies.

I have been working with the French sawmills and I have acquired a lot of knowledge for oak , also I have a good address book with lots of different suppliers , knowing who does what, and the different qualities to look out for and various deals available.

Cut to list any size section and length. I currently supply QPA and QP1. Some clients request to number each beam, this is no problem, we can also mark the length and section on the end of each beam.
