Timberlink is pleased to announce the next stage in the evolution of our Tarpeena manufacturing
facility. With our ongoing commitment to ensuring the highest quality of products to meet customer
needs Timberlink will expand the capability of the Tarpeena manufacturing facility with the
installation of a new state-of-the-art treatment plant. The plant will utilise the latest technology to
ensure the highest environmental standards are achieved. The treatment plant will produce LOSP
treated timber, including Timberlink Green low odour outdoor structural, a key part of Timberlink’s
timber product range.
This exciting expansion in capability for Tarpeena follows the significant upgrade of the site over
three years and leverages off the new sawline currently in commissioning. The facility will support
existing and future treatment needs, including services required to support Timberlink’s Cross
Laminated Timber and Glue Laminated Timber (CLT & GLT) market entry in 2023.
“This investment in a dedicated treatment plant is another key development in the creation of a
world-class timber processing facility in Tarpeena. New permanent roles will be created at the site,
in addition to a number of jobs created during construction,” said Timberlink CEO Ian Tyson.
The project will commence in September 2021 and is expected to be completed early in 2023. This
investment will see further expansion of Timberlink’s production of outdoor timber at Tarpeena.
This will be in addition to the treated timber manufactured at our Tasmania treatment facility
located at the Bell Bay manufacturing plant. Timberlink will continue to support our customer
requirements through maintaining our existing arrangements during this period.
