Duffield Timber is a family owned timber importer based in Ripon, North Yorkshire.
We proudly boast over 60 years of trading and the continuing involvement of generations of the Duffield family. Based near Ripon, North Yorkshire, we are situated on a seven acre site close to the national motorway system and offer prompt delivery on our own lorries.
Our trading philosophy is based on traditional values coupled with innovation and investment in people. The maxim that if you ‘buy right’ you can ‘sell right’ is as true today as when it was first adopted, by our founder Robert Duffield, over 60 years ago.
Quality, value and sustainability are the watchwords of our purchasing practice and many miles are travelled and potential vendors evaluated before we make any purchase.
We're proud that the re-investment at our site is second to none in our industry. Modern sheds, handling equipment, mill machinery, computer systems, delivery vehicles and motivated, fully-trained staff are all testament to the hard work over the past decades.
"Our trading philosophy is based on traditional values coupled with innovation and investment in people."
We have a clear environmental policy: to put it simply, without trees we would have no industry. We also produce our own low carbon wood fuel alternatives at our briquetting factory and have over 500kWh of solar power generation on-site.
We are also an equal opportunity employer committed to our future place in the timber industry.
