He said someone outside of the company had nominated the mill.
Judges took a tour of each site to whittle down the list of nominees to three finalists.
“The win is a result of a large amount of hard work,” he said. “We have a total of 42 staff on site and they are very proud that their quality of work is now recognised throughout the entire state.”
The mill is one of the largest employers in Tiaro.
DTM Timber is one of the Fraser Coast’s oldest businesses and was previously known as Dale and Meyers Timber.
The Tiaro site is one of four mills across the state. The company has its head office, logistics and logging operations based in Maryborough.
