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.
