Henry Timber, family business since 1895
We stock wood from all over the world. As experts in importing and trading wood, we supply our products to a client base of wholesalers and distributors throughout France.
Henry Timber has been a family business since 1895. We are one of Europe's leading timber trading companies, importing wood from South-East Asia, Africa, North and South America, Russia and Europe.
In all, we stock around a hundred different species. From roughsawn timber, construction timber, planed-all-round products, to decorative wood for interior and exterior fittings.
Henry Timber started importing wood in 1975 under the leadership of Luc Henry. In 2004, the range was extended to integrate the distribution of construction wood products, joinery scantlings, interior and exterior cladding, to meet customer needs.
2006 saw the creation of the Wood Platform for specialists and generalist customers of the SAMSE Group, to benefit from the diversity of products, stocks and wood skills of the company.
Patrick Faure - Chairman
In August 2020, we acquired a new 2,500 m² covered building. This building is intended for the storage of construction timber and in particular glue laminated (glulam) and cross-laminated timber, as well as KVH, with an overall capacity of 2,900 m³.
Last year we consumed no less than 18,000 m³ in these product categories. In order to ensure a quality service, we have also invested in vacuum destacking system. This will improve productivity, ensure irreproachable service and above all, offer handling in full safety.
