Premier Forest Products

Established in 1993 by co-founders Terry Edgell, Dilwyn Howells and Nigel Williams, Premier Forest Group is a vertically integrated timber operation engaged in the importation, sawmilling, processing, merchanting, and wholesale distribution of timber and timber products.


Acquisitions are a key part of Premier Forest’s growth strategy and the group called upon Kilsby Williams for assistance with the latest addition to its expanding portfolio. Premier wanted to acquire Monmouthshire Timber Supplies Ltd, also known as Mon Timber, a well-respected supplier of timber products, joinery and truss rafters operating from three sites between Newport and Cardiff.

Kilsby Williams supported Premier Forest by carrying out a financial due diligence engagement on the target company. This involved a detailed review of Mon Timber’s finances, and we used our experience and expertise to verify the business’ records and potential, allowing Premier Forest to make an informed decision to successfully acquire the company.

Terry Edgell, Founder and CEO, of Premier Forest Group said: “Acquisitions sit at the heart of our five-year strategy for growth, but they have to be the right choice for us. This purchase constitutes an excellent fit for Premier, dovetailing neatly into our ongoing plans for diversification and vertical integration with each business being able to benefit from the strengths of the other.”
