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 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 commenced 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 and will be in addition to the treated timber manufactured at its Tasmania treatment facility located at the Bell Bay manufacturing plant.
