The story of Growth Rings

Just like our oak,
the heritage of our business can be traced back year after year

Led by Mike Managh, a New Zealand born, fourth generation sawmiller, we continue the vision of his great grandfather by searching longitude and latitude in pursuit of the world’s greatest timber. To this day, we provide the same unparalleled level of customer service, delivering world-class projects, which are engineered by nature and crafted by experience.

Engineered by nature crafted by experience

From our workshops on the Kent coastline, we specialise in the oak restoration of some of Britain’s most iconic and historic properties. Our team are driven by the unique events that have shaped the wood we use, hand selecting their timber to ensure it matches the heritage of the building in which it will harbour.
