Our History

Palmer Timber is a privately owned company based in the West Midlands.

Our 13 acre site was originally a brick works with its own canal basin, producing blue engineering bricks from the “marl” (clay) which was abundant on the site.

Once the clay had been exhausted the land was purchased by William Henry Palmer, who created a sawmill dealing in home grown hardwoods, establishing WH Palmer Timber in 1916.

The company traded in a modest way until the early 1970’s, where, under the guidance of William Palmer’s grandson, “Bill” Palmer, the company started importing joinery and construction grade softwood from Scandinavia and North America.  

During the early 1980’s the company expanded into trading in both Panel Products and Hardwoods.  As the company grew during this time so began a major reinvestment programme which saw extensive modernisation of the site and machinery, which continues to this very day.
