Situated within the picturesque Cotswold Water Park in Gloucestershire, Berite Sawmills has been operating for more than 40 years consuming around 25,000 tonnes of British-grown coniferous logs and bars every year to meet the needs of UK pallet and packaging manufacturers. Sustainably sourced roundwood arrives from local woodland estates, the Forestry Commission and commercial conifer plantations across the south of England and Wales – all produced to the UK Woodland Assurance Standards and FSC chain of custody controls.
At the core of the business is the production of sawn timber as block-wood, bearers and boards which is sold-on for the manufacture of pallets and packaging to service a wide range of UK manufacturing industries. The sawmills’ co-products (woodchips, sawdust and bark) are also sold for a range of applications including wood-based panels, landscape & amenity, animal bedding and for biomass heat and power. Berite Sawmills is known widely for its development of ‘Dormit’ woodfibre with this high quality virgin fibre product being one of the country’s leading substrates designed for all-weather equestrian gallops and training arenas.
Berite Sawmills operates independently, with a small but dedicated team under the experienced management of David Haste and Director Richard Palmer, within the A. W. Jenkinson Group of companies, so the business is well connected to one of the UK’s leading forestry and logistics operations.
