A brief history.
James Rowlinson left school at the age of twelve and started work sweeping up for a timber merchant. Progressing through the ranks to become a timber salesman. Ultimately, he decided to work for himself and started a small family business in the 1920s, as a brass plate sales agent buying and selling timber. Soon afterwards land was purchased alongside the Manchester Ship Canal on Trafford Park Industrial Estate and in 1926 James Rowlinson & Sons was created.
At the time the British Empire was an area for the export of capital goods, e.g., steam trains, cars, and large consumer goods. So apart from timber for housing, with conventional freight, everything exported had to go in crates or packing cases. The site at Trafford Park, already a sawmill and timber yard, started to manufacture timber crates and packing cases for exported goods.
Through the decades the company expanded, importing timber from around the world and selling everything from timber carcassing for construction, to the finest veneers for high end motor vehicles. Whilst increasing its manufacturing portfolio to included prefab housing panels, wirebound containers, agricultural buildings, roof trusses, pallets, shuttering and much more.
The growth of the company saw a rise in the number of its sites across the UK and Europe. In the 1960s a twenty plus acres site on an ex-RAF aerodrome at Wardle in Cheshire was acquired. Today, the Wardle site is home to the head office of the Rowlinson Group and the key manufacturing site for Rowlinson Garden Products.
The Birth of Rowlinson Garden Products.
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, a shift from conventional freight to containers for shipping and the phasing out of softwood crates and boxes meant Rowlinson were looking for a new product to manufacture. This led to the creation of the Rowlinson 6x4 shiplap shed, the first of its kind. A robust shed with the advantage of being manufactured from kiln dried South African Pine. DIY was becoming very popular and the shed proved very successful and could retail back then for just £99.99. Further products followed, a range of picnic tables and benches and the first steps in what was to become Rowlinson Garden Products.
The Business Today
Drawing from many years of timber knowledge, manufacturing expertise and a passion for innovative new products, Rowlinson Garden Products soon became and continues to be a leading UK manufacturer and importer of an extensive range of garden structures, buildings, and storage solutions.

Sadly the door catch was put on badly and couldn’t be used to close the door so an alternative fastening had to be sorted using a hook and staple. This works well and is probably a better arrangement anyway. Everything else is very good.

A good quality cold frame, and easy to assemble. My only complaint is that one side of one of the wooden frames was broken in transit - it looks like the parcel was dropped onto one corner. However it was a clean break and very easily repaired with exterior woodglue, so good as new.
