Engineered Timber

Our Timber Systems Division was launched over 20 years ago and has grown to become the UK’s largest manufacturer of FSC® and PEFC certified I-Joists, branded as JJI-Joists. Today JJI-Joists have a 45% share of the UK's I-Joist market and are used by every major UK housebuilder.

Pallets and Packaging

James Jones & Sons (Pallets and Packaging) Ltd is one of the UK’s largest pallet and packaging businesses with the capacity to manufacture up to 10 million new wooden pallets a year, while our pallet repair division handles 25 million pallets a year.

Sawn Timber

​James Jones & Sons Ltd operates five sawmills in the UK, all strategically located close to the forests that supply our raw material and close to a skilled and committed workforce, which enables James Jones to deliver the UK's largest supply of British sawn timber to customers across the UK.​

Roundwood Purchasing

Our five Scottish mills need approximately 1,000,000 tonnes of roundwood timber each year to meet our sawmill production requirements. This is purchased from a mixture of private and state sector forests in Scotland and the North of England.


Our state-of-the-art sawmilling operations generate nearly 450,000 tonnes (or 18,000 lorry loads) of timber co-products each year. Co-products are sawdust, woodchips, shavings and bark.
