RML Appoints New Head Of Timber Frame 

Robinson Manufacturing (RML) has appointed a Head of Timber Frame with over 18 years of industry experience, James Stanbridge. 

Born in Kettering and raised in Holland, James has personal connections to the business, with his family being neighbours that became lifelong friends with the late Tim Robinson and his family.  

James has also previously worked with us before in 2003, helping to set up the RML Central head office and factory – supporting in roof design and production amongst other things. 

Moving on Pinewood Structures as a Construction Manager, he dealt with contract negotiation, design coordination, delivery schedules as well as the actual build and overall execution of the development. This is where James started specialising in Timber Frame and gained a deep understanding of this method of construction. 

His next move to The Timber Frame Company (TTFC Ltd), which saw James working remotely as Sales and Operations Director for the business based in Wexford, Ireland. This was still a Timber Frame focussed role, albeit a slightly more modular version than he had previously encountered.  

James became ready for a new challenge, and after connecting with RML General Manager Matt Korny, it was quickly established that he was the right person to manage the exponential growth of the Timber Frame department.   

James has made this comment on joining RML: 

“A personal highlight so far for me has been witnessing a large-scale company retain its family feel whilst being able to implement ideas and process promptly. It has been great to see ideas welcomed, and I look forward to developing the Timber Frame capabilities at RML.” 

James also has several qualifications to his name – with a Level 5 NVQ in Lifting Operations – Cranes and a Level 4 NVQ in Construction Management as well as being SMSTS accredited. In his personal life, James has also been busy with getting married, buying a house and welcoming a baby girl only 12 weeks ago.
