Sykes Timber


Established in 1862, Sykes Timber is a family owned and run business. The company has been supplying high quality hardwood and softwood for over 160 years.

Stocking one of the most comprehensive ranges of timber in Europe and with the 6th generation of the Sykes family now involved in the business, Sykes plan to continue offering an outstanding quality of timber and superb service for many years to come.

Sykes Timber, despite not having a traditional history of supplying wood to the boat trade, has been steadily increasing its involvement in the industry. Recognising the growing demand for high-quality timber in boat construction, Sykes Timber has strategically shifted its focus to meet the markets need. They have successfully positioned themselves as a reliable supplier of premium wood materials for boat building purposes. With their commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, Sykes Timber has emerged as a trusted partner in the boat trade, expanding their presence and contributing to the industry’s growth.

Sykes have recently embarked on a new venture by starting to supply Java teak. Traditionally associated with the boat trade and other wood industries, Sykes Timber recognised the increasing demand for a legal, natural, high quality and sustainable Teak option. By forging partnerships with plantations in Java, Indonesia, Sykes Timber has secured a reliable source of this sought after wood, which comes with FLEGT certification.
