Our Story


Established in 1977, Jalaram Timber Depot started with a simple mission -- to preserve the quality and craft in harvesting the finest wood from around the world and to bring it to India in its most suitable form to find a place in your home or work environment.

Today we are proud to have over 40 years of expertise across not just veneers, but also wooden flooring, plywood and solid surfaces. Jalaram Timber Depot has consistently set the standard for these products in India and we’re happy to say that we continue to do so every day.

Our extensive range of veneers are closely evaluated and curated from around the world, using the best of local materials as well as international woods.

Much like timber that needs the best conditions to grow, we have nurtured strong relationships and built a reputable network of timber suppliers across the globe, which gives us access to the highest quality of materials.

We also lead the market in solid surfaces -- Jalaram Timber Depot was the first to introduce DupontTM Corian® Solid Surface in India, among several other brands that we are proud to partner with.

We are the authorized distributor for the Western region for Parador -- a premium wooden flooring brand from Germany. Our plywood range is curated and certified; any brand endorsed by Jalaram Timber Depot meets the top quality standards since we go through stringent testing processes and set the quality bar for the industry.

At Jalaram Timber Depot, we take our responsibility to the planet seriously. Without exception, all our raw materials are sourced from sustainable forests which are FSC and PEFC certified. In the case of imported logs and veneers, we ensure they are also sourced from FSC and PEFC certified producers, thus ensuring the ecosystem we engage with shares similar values that are important to us.

FSC and PEFC certifications are carried out with regular auditing and inspections to ensure the sustainability criteria are strictly carried out by independent authorities.

In the case of logs sourced from India, our main purchases are from government Forest Department auctions or from plantations (replanted) which are controlled by permissions by the concerned government Forest Department. The Forest Department allows only collection in their forest of dead and fallen logs. Thus, we ensure non exploitation of natural products and the best use of available resources in a sustainable way.
