TWP will become part of James Jones’ pallet and packaging division which includes Unit Pallets, Larch Ltd and wood packaging specialist Trueperch.

“We have supplied TWP with pallet wood for many years and the business was a logical fit for us as it complements our existing pallet businesses, Unit and Larch,” said Ian Pirie, joint managing director of James Jones & Sons.

“It gives us greater geographical coverage of the market and additional flexibility to meet the needs of both the major pallet pools and our general customer base. As TWP is already a timber customer, this won’t impact on our ability to meet the timber supply needs of our other pallet wood customers who can continue to enjoy the same high levels of quality and service they’ve come to expect from James Jones & Sons.”

Peter Mckenzie, TWP managing director, will continue in his current role.
