About RTD Crawford

RTD Crawford Ltd was established in Lisbellaw, Co. Fermanagh in 1978. Initially Ronnie Crawford and a single employee saw the timber through every stage of process and delivery.

A vision to create quality products, coupled with investments in modern equipment allowed the company to develop from these humble beginnings to its position today as the market leader.

In 1996 the company opened a second site in the Port of Belfast. This strategic location gave the company increased control and access to material imported through the port.

In 2004 the company took the bold decision to open a new milling facility on the Lisbellaw site. This resulted in the most modern purpose built milling facility in Europe. High quality shavings, primary used for animal bedding, and Bio Heat Logs which are an excellent source of environmentally friendly fuel, were also added to the RTD Crawford product portfolio.

More recently, RTD Crawford Ltd have invested heavily in Timber Recycling at our Belfast site, and also installed a state of the art Timber Treatment Centre at Head Office premises in Lisbellaw.
