Timberlink will expand the capability of the Tarpeena manufacturing facility in South Australia with the installation of a new state-of-the-art treatment plant. The plant will utilise the latest technology to ensure the highest environmental standards are achieved. The treatment plant will produce LOSP treated timber, including Timberlink Green low odour outdoor structural, a key part of Timberlink’s timber product range.
The facility will support existing and future treatment needs, including services required to support Timberlink’s Cross Laminated Timber and Glue Laminated Timber (CLT & GLT) market entry in 2023.
“This investment in a dedicated treatment plant is another key development in the creation of a world-class timber processing facility in Tarpeena. New permanent roles will be created at the site, in addition to a number of jobs created during construction,” said Timberlink CEO Ian Tyson.
The project will commence in September 2021 and is expected to be completed early in 2023. This investment will see further expansion of Timberlink’s production of outdoor timber at Tarpeena. This will be in addition to the treated timber manufactured at its Tasmania treatment facility located at the Bell Bay manufacturing plant.
Timberlink is a leading Australasian timber products manufacturing business. The business has two sawmills at Bell Bay (Tasmania) and Tarpeena (South Australia) that manufacture plantation structural pine products.
