In 2002 my father, the late Mahmood Mohamed-Fakier started Just Timber, initially as a timber supply outlet. We soon realised that there was a need in the market to expand into other areas in the field, such as wood cutting for cabinet makers and soon bought a small panel saw, which served us well but not for very long as to keep up with the increasing demand for wood cutting, we soon had to buy a bigger machine.
Before long, to keep up with the growing needs of our clients, we had invested in a panel saw, edging Machine and hole boring machine.
Seeing the personalised service and quality of products we offered, we attracted a good deal of business from discerning consumers and further invested in a second cutting machine and a forklift truck.
In 2012, my father passed away, leaving me to run the business but also with the ethics and values on how to run a successful business that he lived by.
In 2016, I decided to join the Timbercity franchise and in addition to the cutting and edging of boards, we also supply skirting, door handles, cabinetry fittings as well as plumbing and electrical Fittings.
I make sure that all this is offered with the same warm and personal service and quality products that our business has always been known for.
In 2018 I invested in a beamsaw which reduced our turnaround time on large orders.
In 2021 The Building Company decided to withdraw the Timbercity franchise and I went back to trading as Just Timber on the 1st Nov 2021.
