June 28 2021

Leading British timber company Premier Forest Group has been named at number 11 in Wales Business Insider’s list ranking owner-managed businesses in Wales.

Established in 1993 by Terry Edgell, Nigel Williams and Dilwyn Howells, who are still closely involved with the day-to-day running of the business, Premier Forest Group’s turnover increased in the last financial year by £31M to £170M.

Terry Edgell, CEO and co-founder of Premier Forest Group, said: “It’s an honour to be ranked so highly alongside such prominent organisations. Myself, Nigel and Dilwyn have worked incredibly hard from day one to grow the business and we’re really proud of the way that Premier Forest has grown.

“The last 18 months has brought with it unprecedented challenges in the form of nationwide lockdowns, operating restrictions and significant supply chain disruption so we count ourselves incredibly fortunate to be in the position we’re in in terms of turnover and growth.”
