Timberlink welcomed Tasmanian Minister Michael Ferguson (Member for Bass and Minister for Information Technology & Innovation), to its Bell Bay mill in Northern Tasmania. There to meet with senior Timberlink managers, the minister toured the mill and saw first-hand some of the investments made by the business since taking ownership of the site.

Timberlink’s two Australian mills recently achieved FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certification on solid wood. This is in addition to the AFS (Australian Forestry Standard)/PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) certifications already held by the Australian sites. No other major Australian sawmilling business holds both FSC and AFS/PEFC certification, something Timberlink is justifiably proud of.
