         Burt Boulton & Haywood Ltd have been
         treating timber with wood preservatives
         since 1848. Our Company was founded by
         two eminent railway engineers, H.P. Burt
         and S.B. Boulton, who laid the foundations
         of the modern timber preservation
         industry. We are the longest established
         timber preservation company in the World.

         Our early years witnessed a huge increase
         in railway building as the process of
         industrialisation gathered pace.
         The burgeoning demand for timber sleepers
         spurred research into methods of timber
         preservation, and Burt and Boulton built an
         international business through their ability to
         supply pressure creosoted timbers in
         commercial quantities.

Timber preservation is an environmental success story.
The processes we use and the availability of safe
preservatives enable engineers and architects to use
non-durable timber, from sustainable temperate forests,
in ground contact and other hostile environments.

The modern bbh is a sharply focused timber preservation
company operating from sites in Newport in South Wales
and Leven in Fife, where we manufacture telephone
poles, power transmission poles, sleepers, crossing
timbers and a range of preserved specialist timber
products. Our tradition of excellence and commitment to
quality and service enable us to maintain our position as a
market leader supplying BT, regional electricity companies,
railway operators and other specialised markets, e.g. stud
farms. We also supply a timber preservation service to the
timber trade and it is customers.

         In some applications timber is in ground
         contact or other demanding environments.
         The products listed within this group are
         guaranteed to last for a minimum of
         40 years without the need for replacement.

                                 When electrification got under way, it was natural that
                                 electricity distribution engineers should look to the

        sleepers are also available. These too can
