HOW DID SCOTTS GET HERE?

OUR FAMILY HISTORY

The Beginning

At the turn of the 20th century, James Scott, upon returning home to Thrapston after the Canadian Gold Rush, founded the now renowned Scotts of Thrapston. He seized upon the experience of skilled cabinet makers in support of the war effort from 1914 -1918.  Employing several members of staff, the business was set up in 1920 to manufacture a wide range of timber products.

THE BUSINESS GROWS

The main thrust of the timber buildings business came in the late 1930s, a time when the company’s skilled craftsmen were again in demand for the war effort. At this time, the company started designing timber summerhouses for the British gentry, some of which are still around today. It was also in this period that James’ son, Douglas, joined the business, an enthusiastic person who began to grow the company.

A NEW AGE

Douglas was ambitious and determined, continuing to grow the business during his tenure. Douglas was responsible for creating the purpose built factory that is still the hub of the business today. The third generation of the Scotts family, David Scott (the current Chairman), joined the business a year before the death of James, in 1962.

David drove the development of new products for the equestrian, housebuilding and education sectors. And, as a great advocate of marketing, David introduced this vital business element and has kept the family principle of the company alive.

THE PRESENT

David’s passion for the business further helped drive the expansion of Scotts summerhouses, forming relationships with the likes of the National Trust and the Royal Horticultural Society.

James Scott, the fourth generation, joined the business in 2000 and is the current Managing Director. James is keen to build on the reputation of Scotts to ensure it is a household name, growing bigger every day.  With the continued introduction of new products, processes and machinery, along with the focus on customer service, David and James are looking forward to the company’s centenary celebration in 2020.
