We have worked with timber processors at all levels from large automated mills to mobile operators and from primary processing through secondary processing, joiners and those involved in innovation in timber products:
– Investment advice, market research and funding applications for new plant, processes or products. We have experience of a full range of grant-funding programmes including Innovate UK bids, LEADER, other public funds and private trust applications.
– R&D for new products and processes. Recent work includes R7D on timber modification technologies, bio-chemcial constituents of wood based bedding, timber preservation technologies.
– Advice on timber sourcing, potential markets and supply-chain development. We are especially interested in working with those seeking vertical integration in the supply-chain.
– Timber quality needs from log to final processing with experience in timber grading for structural applications.
