NeXTimber by Timberlink
NeXTimber® by Timberlink manufactures Australian made engineered wood products (EWPs) and provides mass timber building solutions with Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels and Glue Laminated Timber (GLT) members.
Made from sustainably certified local Australian plantation pine that sequesters carbon from the atmosphere, NeXTimber CLT panels and GLT members provide the biophilic and environmental benefits of traditional timber but with the strength to support taller and more complex structures.
Production of the NeXTimber range is scheduled to begin in 2023. Our locally based technical support team is ready now to help you optimise the use of NeXTimber products in your future projects.

XLam leads the manufacture and supply of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels and Glue Laminated Timber (GLT) beams and columns for use in conventional and mass timber construction projects across Australia and New Zealand.
Across the government, commercial and residential sectors, XLam CLT and GLT is routinely specified and used in applications from major construction projects through to individual mass timber buildings. XLam has secured a market reputation for quality, efficiency and technical support that means XLam is the natural choice for the production and supply of engineered timber for sustainable and efficient prefabricated mass timber and “hybrid” conventional construction.
XLam offers a total solutions package including design, manufacturing, off-site solutions and assembly services. Every project is unique and XLam understands the requirements of a fast, safe and sustainable construction process to ensure efficient delivery.
MASSLAM is a revolutionary glue-laminated (GLT) mass-timber solution from Australian Sustainable Hardwoods (ASH) – Australia’s largest and most advanced hardwood manufacturer.
ASH’s glulam timber systems (including columns, beams, and floors) are grown, owned, and manufactured in Australia.
MASSLAM is designed for manufacture and assembly by our in-house team of MASSLAM experts. MASSLAM has formed the primary structure for many of Australia’s largest and most prominent mass timber projects and with expanding product ranges and fibre resources, many big-scale commercial, residential, industrial, and institutional projects are in the pipeline.
ASH’s MASSLAM range utilises uniquely attractive Australian timbers like Tasmanian Oak and Plantation Oak, as well imported species like American Oak, chosen because they have some of the best strength-to-weight ratios of any timber species worldwide. MASSLAM’s product grades and CNC process has advantages that allow longer spans, higher ceilings, increased floor space, lesser beam depth and lower associated connection and installation costs. Better still, mass timber like MASSLAM is cheaper to construct than concrete and steel, looks better, is safe, sustainable and efficient.

Pentarch Forestry commenced business in 1992 by establishing a business to export softwood pine logs to South Korea. It quickly became apparent that there was minimal expertise in this area elsewhere within Australia. The Company has progressively developed specialist skills and services in the fields of log marshalling, shipping and international trade to facilitate log export operations, and as a result of the acquisition of Boral Timber in 2021, is now one of the largest suppliers of certified hardwood and softwood in Australia with a wide product range including flooring, structural timber, decking, furniture timber, decorative and cladding. Pentarch Forestry products are used for structural, commercial and renovation markets and are distributed across domestic and export markets.

CLT Toolbox is a software company tailored for the timber industry that solves two major problems that can help engineers design with timber products:
- Education: timber isn’t taught adequately at university, nor are their readily available design standards for the emerging mid-high rise opportunity spaces.
- Automated design routines: Engineers around the country are implementing the same design routines, typically through excel.
Research shows that these two major frictions result in approximately 500 hours of unpaid learning for structural engineers in designing their first building. Subsequently, projects are run at a loss and engineers are deterred from the sector
CLT Toolbox is the future of structural design for mass timber buildings. With support from leading mass timber suppliers across Australia, our state-of-the-art software is set to automate the costly structural design process and provide the education missing at university.
CLT Toolbox simplifies the design process, reducing the barrier to entry for engineers unfamiliar with timber. Our software is user-friendly, efficient, and cost-effective, leading the trend towards the productization of construction.
The software has had interest from all Tier 1 engineering firms in Australia and has 10paid beta companies using the product. CLT Toolbox is partnering with the supply chain ahead of an upcoming public release later in 2023.
