Terry Howell started its life back in 1956, when the company began manufacturing wooden ladders at a small family site in South Wales. After a few years, we began to diversify our offering and started producing timber props and cover boards for the coal mines across the South Wales Valleys. As the scale of our business continued to grow, we expanded our operations to sawmill fencing materials, such as; featheredge, posts and rails. This allowed us to open multiple locations in Newport, Pontypool and Risca.
Over 67 years later, our business now operates at two merchant sites, located in Newport and Pontypool, and a five acre wholesale distribution yard. It's important to us that all of our timber comes from fully sustainable sources, which is why we work hard with our suppliers to ensure the timber we supply is sustainable.
As we’ve grown over the years, our people have remained the heart of what we do and this is something we’re incredibly proud of. We're committed to offering our customers a personal experience, that keeps them coming back to us time and time again.
