At Bond Timber we are proudly celebrating our 20th anniversary!
The business has come on leaps and bounds since Bake Sawmill was acquired by WH Bond & Sons Ltd in February 2003
WH Bond & Sons started out as a family farming business founded by Mr William Hermon. By 1997 the next generation – Jon, Chris and Alison Bond take over the running of the business. Having acquired Bake Sawmill as part of the land at Trerulefoot, the family decide to take over the company and re-brand it as Bond Timber.
Since then, the business has changed dramatically, and grown to be one of the leading timber merchants in the South West with award winning treatment services.
Shaun joined the business as manager that February. At the time the business was selling timber to local trade and farmers and operating one 16ft tanalising treatment vessel for tanalising which was supplied by Hicks (Arxada today).
After growing the local trade and retail business, the company developed a sales team to grow merchant and a large trade customer base extending its offering through Cornwall and South and mid Devon.
