The site at Ellesmere now has two main sawmill systems, one processing larger cross sections of timber from logs and the other designed to supplement this, processing smaller cross sections of square sawn timbers. Together this now makes ETC Sawmills one of the largest manufacturers of softwoods for the fencing and pallet industries in England.
Our 37 acre site currently employs 90 people and produces approximately 60,000m3 of sawn timber per year from around 100,000 m3 of round timber intake. Our on-site Machine shop offers a wide range of machined products such as weathering, rounding, morticing, ‘V’ notching, recessing, capping, pointing, planing and many more specific requirements.
We also have our own high pressure treatment vessels on site for the preservative protection of our timbers. Using next generation TANALITH E wood preservative, we can offer both green and brown coloured treatments that effectively extend the service life of our timber products and allow our customers to use them with real confidence.
Using a dedicated and flexible local haulier, we are able to offer a nationwide delivery service and in most instances we can deliver part as well as full articulated lorry loads.
The company is Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) approved in terms our responsible use of timber. We are also members of the UK Forest Products Association.
