About Us

Terry Howell & Sons was founded by Terry Howell in 1956. The company started manufacturing wooden ladders at a small family site in Rogerstone. After a few years, we began producing chocks; used in the coal mines throughout the South Wales Valleys. As the business grew, we began to diversify into sawmilling fencing materials, such as; featheredge, posts and rails. 

Almost sitxy years after opening our first branch in Risca, there's nothing that we don't know about timber! As we've grown over the years, our sites have expanded into three retail stores, two sawmills and a docks site, where we prepare orders for the length of the UK. Our delivery is something we're proud of! In fact, we now operate sixteen vehicles, including six artic lorries and pick-ups.
