First GLT beam from Timberlink’s new plant
Friday 25 Aug 2023Timberlink was pleased to welcome the South Australian Parliamentary Select Committee to its Tarpeena manufacturing facility last week for the South Australian Forest Products Association’s Seed to Structure tour. In attendance were Hon. Nicola Centofanti MLC, Hon. Tung Ngo MLC, Hon. Frank Pangallo MLC, Hon. Ben Hood MLC, in addition to various industry members from across the South Australian forestry sector.
The purpose of the tour was to increase awareness around the many stages of softwood timber manufacturing in South Australia; right from planting seeds in the nursery through to processing and manufacturing finished plantation pine timber products.
Ian Tyson, CEO of Timberlink, was delighted to host the committee at Timberlink’s Tarpeena manufacturing facility and to share with them an exciting milestone in the construction of Timberlink’s Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glue Laminated Timber (GLT) manufacturing facility: the very first glue laminated timber beam produced on its newly commissioned GLT line.
“This is a very meaningful day for Timberlink,” said Ian Tyson. “From our first sod turn in February 2022 to producing our first GLT beam in August 2023, we are well on our way to full production which is scheduled for October this year. It was fantastic to share this milestone moment with the committee.”
Timberlink’s NeXTimber facility will be Australia’s only combined radiata pine CLT and GLT facility
