Message for visitors to our warehouse:
Our landlords have recently placed an automatic barrier to the entrance of our yard to reduce unauthorised access and enhance the security of the tenants.
Many of our visitors have found the barrier confusing and not been able to pass through it.
Please be advised that the barrier is automatic – just drive as close to it as you can and it will rise for you.

Latest Industry News

CITES Update 2017

From 2nd January 2017 if you wish to export articles that are partly or fully made from newly listed species of Rosewood, Padauk and Bubinga then the export will need to be accompanied by a CITES re-export permit. It is possible that the importer/customer of the article may need to apply for a CITES import permit from their own authorities and this should be investigated before the export happens.

Read more about the new CITES regulations here.
