International Track 200

Berwickshire-based BSW Timber is the largest sawmilling business in Britain, supplying timber products primarily to the construction industry. The company, led by chief executive Tony Hackney, also sells to the pallet and packaging, fencing, garden and DIY sectors. Improved product quality – thanks to an ongoing £50m capital investment programme started in 2010 – and favourable exchange rates have driven international sales growth of 57% a year from £7.7m in 2009 to £18.9m in 2011.
