BSW Timber is the most technologically advanced forest products company in the UK. At our seven sites across the UK, and one in Latvia, we manufacture and supply a wide range of quality, FSC®-certified sawn products for an array of industries, including fencing, landscaping, cladding, construction, DIY, decking and packaging.

Our Dalbeattie site currently produces 300,000 m of sawn timber each year but the recent surge in demand for timber is really pushing us to produce and sell more quality product. As a result we need additional Operators to join our 56 hectare sawn timber site and help increase production across shifts.
