Timberlink, one of Australia’s leading national timber manufactures and distributors, has announced that it is investing $63 million (AUD) in its Bell Bay operation as part of a plan to substantially increase its structural timber output.
The two-stage upgrade will include the installation of a new kiln for drying wood and an expansion of the site’s existing sawmill, as well as other infrastructure improvements. The improvements are scheduled to be completed in 2025.
When completed the project is expected to increase the timber manufactured at the site by more than 50 percent, providing material for an estimated 7000 new houses.
