Timber company looks towards bigger retail offer

Timber importer Premier Forest Group, which purchased the Duchy of Cornwall's Duchy Timber sawmill in May, is looking to launch an e-commerce offering for Duchy and expand into more retailers.

Sales of garden furniture, fencing and other sawn timber products are available from Duchy Timber's sawmill outlet in Cornwall or through a Premier Group outlet which are in South Wales, Bristol and Oxford.

The acquisition of The Duchy Sawmill was the latest development in the group’s strategy and pushed it past the £100m annual revenue landmark.

The Duchy Sawmill, which was established in Lostwithiel in 1958, employs 35 staff on a single 4ha site. The business converts locally grown softwood logs into sawn timber.
