National Timber Group acquires specialist fire-rated timber cladding manufacturer NORclad

4 January 2023

NORclad has become the latest specialist timber products business to join National Timber Group (NTG).

It is the most recent in a series of acquisitions designed to further strengthen the Group’s position as the UK’s largest, independent, specialist timber processing and distribution group with a focus on value-added products. 

This announcement follows the recent acquisition of SV Timber in the Midlands, which joined NTG in September 2022.

Headquartered in North Somerset, NORclad is a specialist manufacturer and supplier of bespoke fire-rated timber cladding, facades and other timber products used by commercial and residential customers nationally. 

NORclad’s shareholders will remain in the business, working closely with Patrick Guest, Managing Director of NTG England, to further develop NTG’s fire-rated timber cladding category and realise the opportunities presented by this partnership.

“When we knew the time was right to move the business on by joining forces with a larger organisation our aim was to find a suitable partner that shared our passion and goals,” said Alistair Brown, managing director and founder of NORclad.

“I look forward to the business continuing to grow and develop.”

Patrick Guest, National Timber Group managing director for England, said NORclad would add to what the NTG can do as a Group and were a great example of the type of business the group wants to partner with. 

“They have an outstanding reputation in our sector and work hard to deliver great customer service,” he added.
