Engrained with passion and quality for over 100 years.
Scotts Timber Engineering has manufacturing facilities in Northamptonshire and Worcestershire, and serves housebuilders across the Midlands and the southern half of England. We work with national, regional and local homebuilders and luxury developers.
Our material of choice is timber – combining the benefits of a natural, renewable resource with the high performance of a modern building material which is versatile, efficient and quick to use. Our products offer a low-carbon, environmentally-friendly alternative to other building materials.
We are a leading member of the Trussed Rafter Association (TRA), ensuring our customers can buy with confidence.
At Scotts Timber Engineering, we work closely with our customers, developing meaningful working relationships to create the best solutions. We take pride in offering an end-to-end service so we fully understand your project and can apply our knowledge and experience to create bespoke products that meet your requirements.
We have more than a century’s experience of designing and making timber engineering products, yet our approach to the sector is constantly developing. This ensures we are providing our customers with exactly what they need.
At Scotts Timber Engineering, we recognise the importance of protecting the environment for future generations and so we are committed to a process of continual improvement regarding our environmental impact.
We use timber as it is a renewable, sustainable building material and at Scotts, all our manufactured products are PEFC-certified. This means we adhere to the standards set out for the PEFC Chain of Custody certification. It is important that we as a company, and our suppliers, not only provide our customers with quality products, but are conscious of our environmental impact on making this happen.
Scotts of Thrapston is the founding company within Scotts Group and was established in 1920. Based in Northamptonshire, Scotts of Thrapston has an excellent reputation for bespoke, high quality, specialist timber products. From summerhouses to stables and windows and doors, these timber products are created from a perfect mix of modern technology and traditional craftsmanship.
Following the celebration of its centenary in 2020, Scotts of Thrapston is already looking to what the next 100 years will bring.
Despite a national presence, Scotts Group is fundamentally driven by strong family values and so giving back locally is part of our business practice and ethics. Over the years, we have been pleased to support the Northamptonshire Community Foundation which shares donations across voluntary and community projects in the area. We have also been involved with Northampton Young Farmers to support wellbeing and good mental health. Scotts is now working alongside the Northamptonshire Saints Foundation to help disengaged young people gain vital work experience.
