Timberlink to build CLT and GLT manufacturing facility in South Australia or Victoria

The Timberlink Australia Board has approved plans to enter the growing mass timber market, with the building of a state-of-the-art Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) & Glue Laminated Timber (GLT) manufacturing facility.

The significant investment will see the construction of Australia’s second major softwood CLT plant and first combined CLT & GLT manufacturing facility.

A total of 27 full-time permanent jobs will initially be created when the facility opens in 2023 rising to 50 at full output. A significant number of additional jobs will be created during the construction phase.

Timberlink will commence discussions with both state and federal Governments, to secure a location for the world-class manufacturing facility to be built in either South Australia or Victoria.

Timberlink is a leading Australasian timber products manufacturing business. The business has three sawmills at Bell Bay (Tasmania), Blenheim (New Zealand) and Tarpeena (South Australia) that manufacture plantation structural pine products.
