The National Timber Group (NTG) has acquired NORclad, a specialist manufacturer and supplier of fire-rated timber cladding.

NTG is a manufacturer and supplier of timber and timber-related products. This acquisition is the most recent in a series of similar ones to further strengthen their position as one of UK’s largest, independent, specialist timber processing and distribution group, with a focus on value-added products.

According to NTG, shareholders of NORclad will remain in the business, working closely with Patrick Guest, managing director of NTG England, to further develop NTG’s fire-rated timber cladding category and realise the opportunities presented by this partnership.

Alistair Brown, managing director of NORclad, said: “As the founder of the company, I am very proud of the NORclad team and what we have achieved.

“When we knew the time was right to move the business on, by joining forces with a larger organisation, our aim was to find a suitable partner that shared our passion and goals.

“With NTG, we have found the right people with the same values as us: a continual focus on the customer and the drive to constantly improve. I look forward to the business continuing to grow and develop.’’

Guest concluded: “As a specialist, added-value timber manufacturer and distributor, we are absolutely delighted to welcome NORclad to NTG. They will add to what we can do as a group and are a great example of the type of business we want to partner with.’’
