What we’re about

Sutton Timber are independent hardwood timber merchants and suppliers.  Specialising in wide boards for solid and engineered flooring,  furniture and joinery grade sawn English and European hardwoods, and constructional fresh sawn oak beams.  With Ben’s extensive knowledge of the timber trade and conscientious team in support, the focus is squarely on providing a quality product and excellent customer service.

The quality

Involved at every step of the process we take great care and pride when selecting the timber we supply.  By personally purchasing logs on site, overseeing the milling of every log, kiln drying and end sale Ben Sutton is completely confident in the quality of his product.  As such he is able to offer a fair and competitive price to all our customers and clients.

The Provenance Trail

Sutton Timber are able to provide traceability for all our logs. At point of sale each log is tagged with a unique identity number. After milling it is then transported to Sotterley Sawmills in Suffolk for air drying or kilning. These tags remain with the timber until it is sold ensuring we are able to track every board back to the estate from where it originated.

The History

With a business heritage stretching back over 20 years Ben has decided to further developed and grow his business. The product range now includes engineered flooring and a new  joinery workshop is onsite to offer a bespoke service to customers. Beautiful solid and engineered floors, kitchen worktops, ledge and brace doors and staircases are just part of the range now available as finished products.

Sotterley Sawmills

Air dried timber is moved from Helmdon Sawmills in Northamptonshire to our yard at Sotterley Sawmills in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. This is where Ben’s team takes over production.  With five high tech kilns operating onsite allows for kiln drying the timber. This lengthy process reduces the moisture content of the wood producing boards suitable for flooring in a centrally heated environment.
