History

Afterwood is a family run business set up in 2011 by Jonathan Ford, bringing his experience of working with wood based products into a developing wood fuel industry. Supply of wood fuel on a bulk scale was still a fledgling industry and with Jonathan’s knowledge of the wood supply market, he brought in the distribution experience of Steve Parker to manage the supply of wood fuel to power stations.

The launch of the Renewable Heat Incentive in November 2011 encouraged the uptake of biomass boilers across a wide range of public and private sector organisations and saw Afterwood expanding its customer base with the company now supplying wood chip and wood pellets into nursing homes, poultry farms, leisure, schools and other organisations across the UK.

Afterwood now boast customers from Scotland, through Northern England into Wales the South West and across to East Anglia. We care about our carbon footprint and as our customer base has grown, Jonathan’s close links to the timber industry has enabled us to develop a depot network to replicate the geographic spread of our customers and keeping to a minimum the miles travelled by our wood fuel from forest to flame. Afterwood are on a number of public sector framework agreements and fulfil a number of contracts in this sector. Wood fuel supplied by Afterwood is FSC certified meaning all of what we deliver comes from sustainable resource.

We know that every customer who orders wood fuel with Afterwood have invested in the biomass industry and it is our responsibility that ordering of wood fuel should be made simple. Our emphasis is about an enjoyable customer experience from order to delivery, which is why our customers recommend Afterwood to other wood fuel users.

Recently the wood fuel market has started to see a consolidation of fuel suppliers primarily driven by private equity. At the same time, installation of biomass boilers is on the decline due to a reduction in Government incentives. It is important that we develop our range of products to support our primary wood fuel business. Afterwood are focusing on the future and has developed a range of products to include bedding for equestrian and farming, cat litter, landscaping and aggregates.
