NTS appoints Richard Jarvis as Commercial and Operations Director

National Timber Systems, the engineered wood products division of National Timber Group, has appointed Richard Jarvis to the newly created role of NTS Commercial and Operations Director.

Richard joined the division in 2019 as operations director with 30 years’ experience in the timber industry across manufacturing, sales, design and management.

At NTS he has led a number of critical projects including the complete relocation of the Bristol site, and the significant investment and development of NTS’ manufacturing operations and facilities across all four sites.

Richard Jarvis, NTS Commercial and Operations Director said: “I am especially proud to be taking on this new role as it’s an exciting time to be specialists in the industry. We’re working with housebuilders and contractors nationally who understand the benefits of off-site manufactured engineered timber products, such as roof and floor cassettes, which are contributing to shorter build times with less time spent working at height.”

Nick Kershaw, NTS Managing Director, commented: “This new role is part of our growth strategy and a testament to Richard’s hard work since he joined NTS. Richard has helped to significantly increase efficiency and capacity, enabling us to fulfil national supply opportunities, whilst also making health and safety our first priority every day.”
