Aussie sawmills lead employment surge

Friday 16 Jul 2021

Australia’s timber framing sawmills have increased employment by up to 25 per cent to meet demand fueled by the COVID-induced building boom, according to new analysis by the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA). This stands in stark contrast to reported OECD global trends suggesting timber processing employment will fall by 18 per cent over 2019-2024. AFPA Chief Executive Officer Ross Hampton said forest product processing in Australia is booming with the insatiable demand for Aussie-made sustainable building products.
