Company Profile

Formed in 1964 by the late James Pearson Wilson, ‘Jas P’ Wilson originally began life as an agricultural contracting business, diversifying onto drainage in the 70’s before finding our niche in forestry in the nineties.

Today, still family owned with James’ sons playing key roles in the business, Jas P Wilson has developed into one of the UK’s leading suppliers of forestry and firewood equipment and machinery. They work with customers covering a range of sectors and professions, including Forestry Contractors, Tree Surgeons, Country Estates, Biomass Producers/Retailers, Colleges, and Local Councils.

Our seventy plus strong team of skilled staff, including designers, engineers, service technicians and sales staff operate from an ever-expanding 20,000 square metre base here in Dalbeattie, South-West Scotland, home to our workshops, design studios, offices and dedicated training centre.

A modern business with old fashioned values

Whilst Jas P Wilson has certainly changed a lot in size over the last 58+ years, our way of working, thinking and dedication to looking after our customers certainly has not.

We remain absolutely committed to sourcing, supplying and servicing quality machinery and equipment that performs, gets the job done and is built to last. The relationships with many of our manufacturers and suppliers across the UK and Europe stand for decades.  We know our products inside out and have complete confidence in supplying you with exactly the right equipment whatever your requirements.

With a focus on forestry and firewood equipment, our core product range includes saws, chippers, firewood processors, kindling machines, forestry winches, loaders, trailers, mulchers and harvesting equipment.

Alongside new products, Jas P Wilson stock one of the largest and widest ranges of used machinery, equipment and spare parts in Europe, which we ship internationally.
