Setting the standard
Built on a passion for service and people, we strive to set the highest standards in the quality of product, in the continuity of supply and in every aspect of customer service and support.
Our 90-acre site in North Lincolnshire allows us to hold more than 80,000m3 of timber on-site guaranteeing 98 per cent of product in stock at any one time. It facilitates a vast throughput of over 300,000m3 of quality timber products supplied annually to the distributor, merchant and industrial sectors.
And with our extensive portfolio of products, ranging from machined and structural timber, MDF mouldings, timber and composite decking to a bespoke milling service offering unique customised solutions, we offer a market-leading multi-product solution, all delivered on one vehicle.

Meet Jason Ostler,
1960s THE BEGINNING
The purchase of land at New Holland was the first step in our growth. It enabled us to increase our stock holding and start shipping timber direct from Sweden so we could offer a consistent supply to our customers.Next chapter >
1980s ADDING VALUE
We began manufacturing softwood to ensure quality products. Customers trusted our service and expertise and were keen for us to supply manufactured products as well as the raw material. We built a sawmill and more storage sheds to facilitate this second growth stage.Next chapter >
1990s SEIZING OPPORTUNITIES
Arbor Forest Products is able to identify and quickly take advantage of new opportunities, and we became the first UK company to bring in Russian cargo outside the Soviet Timber Trade Federation. The dock was completely refurbished to cope with increasing tonnage and is now the largest of its kind in the UK.Next chapter >
2000s THE GAME CHANGER
We extended our product lines and began manufacturing MDF, providing a complete multi-product offering. Continual investment and a focus on customer-centric processes allowed us to eliminate minimum order requirements by delivering all our products on one vehicle – our revolutionary Warehouse on Wheels service.Next chapter >
Being part of the Arbor Family means we support each other and Gro together
We’re a multi-generation family business, but our view of family extends way beyond two brothers – the way we see it, our family has nearly 200 members, and we all work as a team to make it our success.
Everyone helps us to be the strong and hard-working company we are today – from our MDF and Garage teams, to our delivery drivers, and all those that work within our 90-acre site in North Lincs.
We’re passionate about our role in giving back to the community, that’s why we gifted the Community Centre to the local residents of New Holland to make a space for them to enjoy. In addition, 69% of our team are hired from within a 10-mile radius of Arbor and our MD started as an apprentice in the 90s.
