In mid-2020, Maryborough’s iconic supplier to the Australian building industry, Hyne Timber completed construction on its $23 million glue laminated timber plant.
The new state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing plant will focus on the large-scale production of glue laminated timber.
Local production of engineered timber is a growing market in Australia and Hyne’s new facility could position Maryborough at the centre of supply. The product has applications in the residential and mass timber construction markets and is sustainable, cost effective, high strength and aesthetically pleasing.
Hyne’s own glue laminated timber beams are a prominent feature in the new 4000 square metre facility that has been constructed at the company’s existing site in Maryborough.
Construction supported around 80 jobs, and the facility is tipped to create more than 40 jobs once fully operational. There is also great potential for future jobs growth with huge capacity to ramp up production and export interstate and overseas in years to come.
Hyne Timber CEO Jon Kleinschmidt said the new plant represents innovative, sustainable and quality construction.
“Local production of engineered timber is a growing market here in Australia and is a natural extension of our extensive experience in the timber business,” Mr Kleinschmidt said.
“Glue laminated timber such as our new LGL Plus will be a welcome option for residential and mass timber commercial construction projects as it is cost effective and high strength with clear glue lines resulting in superior appearance.
“It is all sustainably grown and certified Queensland plantation pine, manufactured at our Tuan Mill near Maryborough before being glue laminated at the new plant.”
Construction of the facility was supported by the state government’s $175 million Jobs and Regional Growth Fund, and provided a great boost to the Maryborough region.
