McKay Timber

McKay Timber was established in the early 1950's as a timber merchant. The company has since diversified to operate three sawmills in Tasmania. These facilities include a timber mill and drying facility at Glenorchy in Southern Tasmania and sawmills at both Triabunna in South East Tasmania and St Helens in the North of the state. The Glenorchy site also operates a timber truss plant and wall framing operation. The company employs a total of 98 employees across the three sites.

McKay Timber focuses on the processing of Tasmanian hardwood timber, predominantly eucalypts, sold under the generic name of Tasmanian Oak.  Timber is supplied to the market in a number of value added forms from lower grade undried timber to high quality timber products for the Tasmanian building and joinery trade.  McKay Timber is also an exporter of timber to mainland states.

Dried timber from Mckay Timber is used in building, joinery and other applications such as flooring, bench tops and furniture that require a uniform timber grain and a high appearance quality product.

McKay Timbers’ Tasmanian Oak logs are harvested from sustainable yield forests that are managed by Forestry Tasmania.
