Celtic Offsite teams up with Premier Forest Products

20 January 2023

Celtic Offsite has teamed up with Premier Forest Products as part a plan to develop a Welsh supply chain aimed at reducing its carbon footprint and support the local economy.

Celtic Offsite, part of the United Welsh Group, manufactures up to 250 timber frame structures a year, complete with factory fitted insulation and windows.

Premier Forest Products was initially approached by Celtic Offsite to supply OSB for sheathing for timber frame panels, as well as plywood and chipboard. 

However, thanks to Premier’s growing product offering, the company has recently started supplying roof trusses, engineered floor joists and Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) for structural beams, taking Celtic Offsite ever closer to their goal of using Welsh suppliers for more of their manufacturing work.

“It is so inspiring to be working with an organisation in Wales that not only recognises the benefits of using timber but is actively working to build a sustainable supply chain, hopefully changing the way that homes are built,” said co-founder and CEO of Premier Forest Products Terry Edgell.
