A brand-new look for Timberlink as it celebrates its 10 year milestone

Dahlsens has been proudly partnering with Timberlink for reliable framing pine supply since its formation 10 years ago. Following the sale of Gunns Limited’s softwood sawmilling assets, Timberlink was created as part of an integrated softwood forestry business managed by New Forests. This February, Timberlink celebrated its 10 year anniversary.

Since the beginning, CEO Ian Tyson has been at the helm. “Thanks to the great support we have had from our customers and through expanding our operations, we have grown as a business, and now proudly employ 600 team members compared to where we started in 2013 at 380. The majority of these team members are in regional areas,” said Ian Tyson.

Timberlink operates two regional large scale timber manufacturing facilities, one in Bell Bay, Tasmania, and the other in Tarpeena, South Australia; with both sites solely processing plantation grown Radiata Pine sawlogs which are distributed through their extensive national network.

This year Timberlink will complete two significant innovation projects: one in mass timber with Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glue Laminated Timber (GLT), and one with wood-plastic composites. These projects will take Timberlink from being primarily a structural timber manufacturer to a structural engineered timber products and solutions business, a remarkable change in ten years.

To reflect and support this growth, Timberlink has released a new positioning statement, “a future made better for all”, which is reflective of its commitment to help build environmentally friendlier homes and buildings that support the world being a better place for the generations that follow.

Ian Tyson said “it’s been a great start and a fantastic ten years, but it’s only the beginning. We will continue to build on what we’ve already done and look forward to our future. There is so much more opportunity for us. We thank all our customers and suppliers for their support over this journey and we are even more excited about the next 10 years.”

Dahlsens congratulates Timberlink on its 10 year anniversary, the first of many milestones for an innovative company with a bright future ahead. Thanks for all your support!
