Stowmarket manufacturer recognised among 1,000 companies to inspire Britain

Following consistent high levels of growth, Suffolk wood chipper manufacturer, Timberwolf, has been recognised as one of the ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ in the London Stock Exchange Group’s 2019 Report.

The annual report celebrates the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) over the last three years, with companies representing over 40 sectors and spanning every region of the country included in the prestigious list.

Stowmarket based Timberwolf was selected among a group of five businesses nationwide to represent the engineering and manufacturing sector, while also being highlighted as a leader within the manufacturing sector.

Timberwolf produces Europe’s best-selling sub 750kg wood chipper series – the TW 230PAHB and TW 230DHB – from its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Suffolk. These two machines have contributed significantly to Timberwolf’s large growth in the UK and Europe, with sales increasing by 256% since 2013.

Chris Perry, Managing Director at Timberwolf, said: “Everyone at Timberwolf works incredibly hard to deliver unbeatable power and performance from every machine so it is a real boost for the whole team. We have grown considerably in both size and sales over the past few years, so are very proud to cement that growth with recognition on the national stage.”

In the ever-evolving arboriculture industry Timberwolf has stood out through its drive to constantly improve machinery using new technology combined with over 30 years of industry engineering experience, and is the UK’s leading manufacturer of professional wood chippers.

“Congratulations to all the companies selected for inclusion in the sixth edition of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report, which identifies the UK’s most dynamic SMEs,” said David Schwimmer, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group.

“SMEs drive growth, innovation and job creation and are the lifeblood of the British economy. We believe that supporting the growth of these businesses is critical to the UK economy and the creation of a society that works for everyone.”
