The UK’s leading manufacturer of professional wood chippers, Timberwolf joins Made in Britain.
Accredited to businesses selling goods that have been manufactured or have undergone a final substantial change in Britain before sale, Made in Britain is the official collective mark for British manufacturers.
From its purpose-built manufacturing facility in Stowmarket, Suffolk, Timberwolf specialises in the design and manufacture of professional wood chippers for the arboricultural and horticultural sectors.
Chris Perry, Manging Director at Timberwolf, said: “Timberwolf wood chippers have become renowned in the UK and in export markets for engineering excellence.
“Everyone at Timberwolf works incredibly hard to deliver unbeatable power and performance from every machine and to be a part of a collective promoting British engineering is very important to us.”
According to a recent Make UK report, manufacturing in the East of England contributes £17.8bn to the UK economy and employs over 244,000 people in the region.* Recognised for their contribution to the regional economy, Timberwolf were awarded the Large Business Award and Business of the Year Award in the 2019 East Anglian Daily Times Suffolk Business Awards.
Timberwolf machines are designed in-house by a team of nine engineers and the company is committed to inspiring future generations to work in the Engineering and Manufacturing industries through supporting six in-house apprentices as well as attending local career fairs.
An innovative business approach is at the heart of Timberwolf’s success and longevity and is clearly demonstrated by its position as the only UK manufacturer in its sector to use a flow line system, increasing flexibility and efficiency through production.
The company is committed to helping support local suppliers with more than a quarter of suppliers located within 25 miles of Timberwolf’s Stowmarket base, and 50% of suppliers within 75 miles. In addition, almost 90% of externally sourced components are supplied by British-based companies, with over 60% of components from within a 100-mile radius.
Timberwolf’s success and commitment to innovation drew the attention of the London Stock Exchange Group who, in 2019, identified Timberwolf in their ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report.
Chris Perry, Manging Director at Timberwolf, said: “We have seen strong growth in our Export markets over the past five years and we now export nearly 50% of our machines outside of the UK.
“British Manufacturing and Engineering excellence is valued highly in international markets and the addition of the Made in Britain mark, which our products will wear with pride, will help strengthen our ambitious international trade goals and let any customer know that their machine is made to the very highest of standards.”
