About us


Gilmour & Aitken is among the UK’s leading suppliers of high quality sawn and engineered timber products.  Our comprehensive timber range includes hardwoods, mouldings and laminates for doors, stairs and windows.

Gilmour & Aitken is the leading supplier in the UK of marine and civil engineering construction timbers including UKs largest stockholder and supplier of Greenheart.   We supply to many businesses around the UK and direct for larger tendered contracts.  We hold significant stock holdings at our large site in central Scotland so can enable a quick response to customers orders.

Our skilled sawmilling and hardwood team based in the yard near Glasgow enable bespoke products designed to customers’ specifications.

We’re a 5th generation business and have been auditing our supply chain around the world, and particularly in the tropics for decades since 1852.  We are extremely proud to do business and enable trade in some of the poorest countries in the world.  The contribution of sustainable forestry in remote parts of the world is being better recognised through the promotion of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We are FSC and PEFC Chain of Custody holders and Timber Development UK RPP holders.

We value our long term customer base and aim to uphold our reputation for quality, flexibility and outstanding customer service.
