About Us


In 1890 George Edward Ramsey started to build canal boats and barges in Bradford. 120 years and four generations later, Ramsey Timber is the major supplier of timber products to the UK bedding industry.
Our components can be found in the construction of beds in virtually any British furniture showroom - testimony to our excellent reputation in the UK market.
