Sustainability is essential at John George. Adhering to strict regulations on the import of sustainable timbers and only using FSC certified/local timbers is implicit in our material sourcing. A selection of our stock timbers can be seen at the workshops in Hathersage; with the majority being stored at our timber storage up the road in Sheffield. We hold stocks of both commercial and non-commercial sustainably-produced English species, alongside FSC regulated European and American timbers. We only use stock of pre-1980s tropical timber from retiring cabinetmakers and liquidation stock sales. When sourcing, we will not buy ‘new’ tropical timber unless requested by the client; and these must be FSC regulated.
