BSW Timber Ltd, the UK’s largest integrated forestry and sawmilling group, has acquired Bayram Timber Ltd. Established over 20 years ago, Bayram is a market leading timber processor and manufacturer, and a key supplier into the UK caravan, leisure home and garden sectors.
Operating from a 17 acre site in Melton, East Yorkshire, the business has annual sales of£30 million and employs over 160 people.
The acquisition of Bayram will strengthen BSW’s value-added processing capabilities and further broaden BSW’s product offering and service to customers.
BSW was founded in 1848 and its head office remains in the town of Earlston in Berwickshire, Scotland, where the business originated.
The BSW Group has six main operating divisions – tree nurseries, forestry management, tree harvesting, sawmilling, biomass energy and timber processing and distribution – operating as BSW Timber, BSW Energy, Tilhill Forestry, Dick Brothers, Alvic Plastics, Maelor Forest Nurseries and BSWTimber Solutions, and now Bayram Timber.
BSW Group is the largest timber and forestry business in the UK, with combined turnover of over £580 million and capacity to produce over 1.2 million cubic metres of sawn timber per year.
The sawmilling business operates at seven sites across the UK with one in Latvia.
