The BSW Group is the largest integrated forestry business in the UK - and it has five main operating divisions: tree nurseries, forestry, sawmilling, timber manufacturing and energy.

BSW manufactures and supplies a wide range of quality, FSC®-certified sawn products for an array of industries, including fencing, landscaping, cladding, construction, DIY, decking, and packaging. This covers everything from C16 construction timber to innovative products such as composite decking and acoustic fence panels. The company also offers fencing components – such as posts, rails, and boards – in addition to sleepers, purlins, beams, baulks, and large sections (up to 8m long).

BSW has 1,700 employees and is passionate about creating a sustainable future for British forests and woodlands, and as such the company is a proud member of Grown in Britain. For every tree BSW harvest’s, a minimum of three are planted in its place, and the group uses 100% of the log it receives.

Culture and working environment


Considering the size of the site, the culture at the Melton site is collaborative, organised, and fun. Working 4 on/ 4 off shifts (permanent days and permanent nights) each team work together to achieve production and distribution volume targets. With safety as the number one priority, our Behaviour Based Safety programme further enhances the requirement for everyone to take responsibility for safety in the workplace.


Following considerable growth, training programmes are available for people entering the workplace for the first time. BSW have invested in an in-house FLT/Sideloader trainer, to be able to put non-licensed drivers through a driving course.
