Middleton Forge Achieve FSC® Certification

19/12/2018

Middleton Forge are pleased to announce that in September they became fully FSC®  Certified.

FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) is a global, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide.  FSC®   works to improve forest management worldwide and runs a global forest certification system with two key components made up of Forest Management and Chain Of Custody.  Chain of custody (CoC), tracks timber through each stage of the supply chain from the forest to the mills, importers, distributors and then into ourselves.

With Middleton Forge seeing an increase in demand over the years for responsibly and legally sourced timber, Company Director Scott Wallace explains,

Over the years we have seen increase for well managed timber. Many of the local authorities, main contractors and major construction companies are now specifying Chain of Custody on timber products.

We were given training by CoC Consultant Robert McLaughlin and then audited by Interface NRM Ltd, which I’m pleased to say we passed with flying colours. FSC® Certification allows the builders merchants to offer a responsible approach to purchasing of timber and then arrange delivery of materials straight to site at a time convenient to our customers.
