We’re committed to providing quality products and exceptional service to all our customers, with a big emphasis on innovation and new product development.
It’s how we’re fast becoming the market leader, with an engaged team that are in ‘The pursuit of Woodlands Excellence’.
Our company is founded as Arthur Shaw Ltd (ASL) – a local manufacturer of bespoke furniture, handcrafted from timber.
Eric Moran purchases ASL and a year later sons Chris and David join him in the business as our flagship DIY store opens at a new Horsforth site.
A NEW DIRECTION
The company shifts production towards outdoor garden products and our first timber garden shed is created. ASL is renamed Woodlands Homecare Ltd.
David’s son, Ross Moran, joins the business to upgrade our IT services and launch our first company website.
We move our key production operations to a new purpose-built shed production and timber sawmill site at Rodley, Leeds.
TIMBER LOG CABINS
We begin manufacturing our own range of interlocking timber log cabins at the luxury end of the market.
We develop and launch our D2C brand tigersheds.com alongside a fleet of small vehicles to provide nationwide home delivery.
We craft a truly unique modular shed that is configured by our customers, providing flexibility to have it exactly how you want it.
A NEW VISION
With David Moran retiring after 37 years of successful service, Ross assumes sole ownership, and the business launches its ambitious new 5-year vision.
Ged Lees is appointed to our Board of Directors, helping to create a new senior team. Woodlands Homecare Ltd is renamed Woodlands Home & Garden Group.
We purchase a state-of-the-art new factory in Thornbury, which will house all log cabin production, allowing expansion of shed production at Rodley.
TIGERFLEX® LOG CABINS
We launch Tigerflex® configurable log cabins, featuring interchangeable doors and window positionings for ultimate flexibility.
The Woodlands Academy was created as a centralised hub to provide inductions, training, support and development opportunities for everyone within the Woodlands Group.
In line with our pursuit of excellence, we are committed to a strategy of continuous improvement in all areas, and the Academy aims to identify and implement the appropriate processes to drive this forward.
Our core values define who we are and support our push for continuous improvement. We call this, APEX:
We take accountability for our actions and work, holding ourselves against the highest standards.
We believe in what we do and we’re passionate about achieving our customers’ goals.
We challenge ourselves to achieve incredible things, and continually improve through listening, learning and innovation.
Investing in the future
Innovation and quality are at the heart of everything we do at Woodlands. Investment in our people, new products, technology and better use of data and performance metrics empower us to develop our ranges and services.
