Havwoods

Havwoods

Established in 1975 in Britain, Havwoods International’s dedication to quality, expertise and service very quickly cemented the company as Britain’s foremost wood flooring brand, supplying architects, specifiers and individuals around the world. In 2010, Havwoods expanded into the Australian timber flooring marketing, joining forces with established Australian timber company, Select Timbers.

Today, with over 40 years experience in sourcing the very finest engineered timber flooring and cladding, our passion for ensuring our customers receive high-quality wood products that are both fit-for-purpose and fit-for budget has made us leading suppliers for residential, commercial, high-volume retail and hospitality projects around Australia.

We concentrate almost exclusively on engineered wood flooring for floors, cladding and even joinery. Havwoods personnel personally select the very best products from the best manufacturers worldwide and the result is a superior portfolio of over 160 different types of wood flooring products to choose from.
