We are delighted to announce that Alan Christison will join us at the end of November as General Manager. Alan has worked in the Forest Industry for over 40 years and has spent the last 10 years as Regional Harvesting Manager for Tilhill Forestry, managing a team of harvesting managers to deliver over half a million tonnes of timber to market each year. Prior to this, he worked for 18 years for Adam Wilson & Sons Ltd of Troon as Forest Operations Manager and then Company Director responsible for timber procurement and management of the Company’s forests and farms. Our association with Alan dates back to 1991, when he engaged JWS to clear timber in Loch Ard Forest in the early days of cut to length mechanisation in Scotland and our paths have been close ever since. He is a Chartered Forester and experienced business manager who is well known and respected within the Forest Industry in Scotland and North England. Alan will oversee the management of our harvesting operations to ensure that we deliver against our Quality Assurance ISO Certification under BS ISO 45001: 2018 and BS EN ISO 14001: 2015 and help develop and diversify the provision of JWS services to timber customers and forest owners.
