Tulloch Timber (Nairn) Ltd., a family based sawmiller of Scottish Softwoods, has been awarded a Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) investment of £35,858, that will be used to help support their expansion project. That will include a new chipping canter machine that will speed up production and make the process more efficient. As part of the project, new wood chip conveyors will also be installed and a storage bay will be built, which will collect the wood chips produced by the chipping canter. As chips are a valuable co-product, it will provide the firm with an opportunity to capitalize on this area and expand the firm’s original customer base. The expansion will allow for the addition of two additional employees.
