Coronavirus COVID-19

Following Monday’s Government announcement, the Directors of James E Smith (Timber) Ltd & James E. Smith (Northern) Ltd. reluctantly took the decision to close with immediate effect until further notice.

The health and safety of our employees is paramount, and the board feels that we cannot operate our yard and mills in compliance with the strict Public Health England’s guidelines.

We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause but we strongly believe that if all companies act in compliance with the guidelines the period of disruption to all our businesses will be kept to a minimum.

We will return to full operation as soon as the Government’s restrictions are relaxed.

We wish you and your families well in this difficult period and hope you all stay healthy.

Your normal point of contact is reachable on their mobile telephone should you wish to discuss or require clarification.

e-mails are also being monitored.
