With over 180 years' trading experience, the Howarth Timber Group has grown to provide not only the widest range of products for trade and retail customers, but expertise, service, and knowledge you can rely on.
Now the UK's largest privately-owned timber company, our origins can be traced back to 1840 when we commenced trading in Leeds City Centre as Hudson & Co. Over the years the Howarth Group has expanded from a one-man company to an employer of more than 1,000 specialists who know the industry inside out.
Howarth are a family run business and those family values run through everything we do.
Our people are at the heart of our business, and we take great pride in our teams of local experts serving our local communities.
With a nationwide network of branches supplying timber and building materials, dedicated kitchen bedroom and bathroom showrooms, and dedicated manufacturing divisions supplying specialist timber engineering services, the Howarth Timber Group is focused on providing market leading choice, quality, service, and value.
