Gordon Timber Turns 160!

11 February 2022

We are excited to announce that we are 160 years old!

“Gordon Timber has come a long way since Hugh Mackintosh announced 160 years ago, from The Steamboat Office, Nairn, that ‘By keeping a good article and strict attention to detail, he will merit a share of public patronage’. People, quality and service – nothing’s really changed, the fundamentals remain the same. And yet everything’s changed - through an ongoing intensive programme of investment, we have progressed from our fleet of schooners and Burrell steam traction engine of the 1800s to the excitement of our first foray into 21st century robotics in our 160th year.”

We are looking for the next generation of people who share our enthusiasm for working in this family business and want to make a difference.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our loyal suppliers, customers and workforce, past and present, without whom none of this would have been possible.

A huge thank you to Andrew from Dynam for putting the article together – please see links below.

Here’s to the next 160 years! 🥂
