About British Hardwoods
British Hardwoods has been in business since 1992. MD, Tony Fillingham, started out as a one man operation using a mobile chainsaw mill gradually building up a stock of mature hardwoods from fallen and inaccessible logs. Today, the company is one of the UK’s leading timber merchants and wood flooring manufacturer, operating from a 17,500 ft2 purpose built factory situated at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.
At British Hardwoods we are passionate about the values that timber can offer to your living environment. We know that the hardwood products you buy from us will be part of your everyday life for years to come, which is why we strive to make sure they offer excellent value and a lifetime of enjoyment.
Our other passion lies not only in the quality of our products, but the quality of life. We employ a very environmentally friendly approach to manufacturing our products, sourcing hardwoods only from certified suppliers across Europe, North America and Canada. Furthermore, 100% of our wood waste generated during our manufacturing process is re-used to fuel our biomass converter to heat our entire factory and offices. We also have facilities to produce biodiesel from waste vegetable oil which we use to run our Scania eco-generator making us completely self-sufficient for heat and power.
