Company Info

Thomas Armstrong (Timber) Limited was established as a subsidiary of Thomas Armstrong Limited in 1964. The main activity of the company at start up was that of manufacturing timber components for the bed industry. Gradual expansion over the years has seen the company move into other furniture component manufacturing areas linked to the bed industry, whilst the development of our pallet manufacturing and roof truss design and production facilities have continued apace. We have also recently moved into timber frame in 2008 along with manufacturing metal web \"Space Joists\". The company is well established in a modern 12000 m2 facility adjacent to our group headquarters at Flimby. Production lines exist for the manufacture of chipboard based draw wrap and draw fronts, together with a section dedicated to the making of bed frame components. Pallets, packing cases and crates are produced using the latest automated production techniques.The Timber Division has continually kept pace with the development of roof trusses from early beginnings, using the plywood gusset joint to the present day practice of assembling the truss with galvanised steel connector plates. We have a semi-automated line to manufacture the timber frame panels along with a press to manufacture our metal web joists. We are an ISO 9001 registered company and the work force takes pride in the quality of product we manufacture.
