Australia’s TimberLink Announces Plan to Build Mass Timber Factory

Australia’s budding engineered timber market received more good news with the announcement that Tasmanian timber producer TimberLink plans to build a mass timber factory in either South Australia or Victoria. The company is now in conversation with state and federal governments to lock in a location for the new facility. Earlier in the month TimberLink had announced its plans to build a cross laminated timber (CLT) & glue laminated timber (GLT) manufacturing facility earlier this month, with the facility expected to open in 2023. The new factory will be Australia’s second major softwood CLT plant (XLam opened a CLT manufacturing plant at Wodonga in 2018), and the first combined CLT and GLT manufacturing facility.
