About Harlow Bros

Harlow’s is a family-owned business with more than 90 years of experience as a timber merchant.

But if family businesses are supposed to be reluctant to embrace cultural change, nobody told Harlow. They’re in the middle of a company-wide shake-up to challenge the traditional employee/employer relationship. They’re going beyond a pay-cheque and making a real difference to the lives of the people who work for them.

That willingness to embrace change and evolve to meet the changing demands of customers and employees has allowed Harlow’s to stay competitive in the face of competition. As more recognisable brands have moved into the area, they’ve continued to attract fresh talent and retain their existing workforce by offering more than just a big name.
