Whitney Sawmills launched its new website this autumn. The fresh, new design is in the style of Woodland Heritage’s own site, the charity having bought Whitney Sawmills in August 2016 from Will Bullough, who founded the milling business in the early-1990s.
“The new website shows the range of products that Whitney Sawmills sells from green oak and Douglas fir beams and cladding, to air-dried and kiln-dried planks and boards including decking, flooring, skirting and architraves”, said manager, Dermot Doyne. “The variety of timber stocked has always remained wide and as well as the always-in-demand oak and Douglas fir, ash, cherry, elm, poplar, sycamore and sweet chestnut continue to be popular, with walnut, lime, alder and maple added according to availability”.
Whitney Sawmills has accreditation from FSC, PEFC and BSL and whilst it will always carry stock from Europe, the mill favours sourcing its logs from the UK to help advance the charitable aims of Woodland Heritage.
“Woodland Heritage believes in a thriving timber supply chain in the UK and in particular one that serves hardwood growers and users”, continued Mr Doyne. “Whitney Sawmills gives the charity the opportunity to buy hardwood logs in support of the UK forestry industry and then to sell on milled products to benefit users as diverse as timber framers, joiners, cabinet makers and turners”.
Between them, the staff at Whitney Sawmills have decades of experience working in the timber supply chain and have an excellent track record of fulfilling both the more common and the more unusual requests. Some of the most unique case studies the mill has been involved with are a feature of the new website, including milling elm for restoration of HMS Victory, recently featured in ‘The Times’.
The new website can be found at www.whitneysawmills.com with its facelift planned and delivered by Surrey designers, Incandescent and Alex Campbell-Hart.
