Company History

Formed in 1946 by Robert Duncan Senior, after he had returned from fighting in WW2. Starting as a small yard in the Stepney Bank area of Gateshead, the company soon outgrew the land and moved to bigger premises on Green Lane on the up and coming Saltmeadows Industrial Estate. This is where we still trade today under management of MH Southern and Co – an established timber importers and sawmill company that have been in the industry for over 100 years.



Robert Duncan Timber Products are constantly working towards a more environmentally aware business. We source timber from sustainable forests (FSC® (C001728) and PEFC) who are dedicated to the management of the world’s forests. All our timber treatments are water based and environmentally friendly, while timber waste is recycled back into the industry for use in areas such as chipboard production.
