FWPA Australian Timber Industry Investment Review

FWPA Australian Timber Industry Investment Review

FWPA sought to better understand the level of recent investment that has occurred within the timber industry processing operations. To achieve this, the industry was segregated into four categories, namely: softwood sawmilling, hardwood sawmilling, panel plants and plywood operations.

A voluntary survey of selected production facilities was conducted to ascertain the total level of investment over the past five years, where that investment had occurred within the production sequence, what type of technologies were being targeted and what potential benefits were being sought.
