New managing director for SCA Timber Supply UK

Published:  15 March, 2013

On Tuesday (12 March), Neil Emsley was appointed managing director of SCA Timber Supply in the UK.

A fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport, Mr Emsley first joined SCA Timber Supply as operations director in 2007, rising to become group operations director and responsible for SCA’s three UK timber business locations.

Mr Emsley originally joined SCA from a background in retail brand FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods). He has since been closely involved in the operational development of SCA Timber Supply internationally, helping establish a strong base for its detail and builders merchant market operations across Scandinavia, France and Britain.

He said: “Resource efficiency, whether in timber, energy or transport, is key to operational efficiency and thus to the service levels and carbon reductions we can deliver to SCA Timber Supply’s customers going forward. Putting these at the heart of our business creates a stable base for expanding further SCA Timber Supply’s share of the retail and builders’ merchant markets, to which we are firmly committed in the UK and elsewhere.”

Commercial director Stephen King, international finance director Alan Mills and chairman Anders Ek, who is also president of SCA Timber Supply, will support Mr Emsley on the UK board of SCA Timber Supply.
