Murray Timber Group is a family-run business established in 1977. Since its foundation Murray Timber Group has grown to become one of the largest, most progressive and flexible sawmills in Ireland.
Operations are spread across two production facilities in Ballygar County Galway, and Ballon in County Carlow.
With world class processing facilities capable of processing in excess of 1,000,000M3 of logs annually, Murray Timber has the capacity to ensure that forest owners always get the best price for their timber.
Our plants are ideally located to meet domestic and export demand. All our construction timber is kiln-dried and graded in accordance with NSAI standards to ensure adherence to specified moisture content regulation. This is achieved by using state-of-the-art drying techniques. Timber is then regularised on the planing line and graded to ensure it is of the highest quality to meet our customers requirements.
In 2008 Murray Timber Group launched the SNR brand to emphasise the benefit to the environment of using our timber.
Timber is carbon neutral and one of the most sustainable resources the planet possesses. As the world becomes more environmentally aware the size of our carbon footprint takes on a greater importance.
The use of our timber has a much smaller carbon footprint than imported timber due to the proximity of the markets that we service.
As part of our commitment to the environment, Murray Timber Group ensures logs are sourced from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC®). FSC® certification requires regular audits of our practices and processes and adherence to the stringent rules and regulations laid down by the FSC®.
Forest Stewardship Council – FSC® - is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. It provides standard setting, trademark assurance and certification services for companies and organizations interested in responsible forestry. Products carrying the FSC® label are from independently certified forests managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. FSC® has offices in more than 50 countries.
