Britton Timbers has secured Australian distribution rights for the sought-after Uruguayan plantation hardwood, Eucalyptus Grandis. Renowned world-wide as a practical multi-use timber, Grandis is now available to Australian customers through Britton Timber's distribution centres in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

According to Britton Timbers Director Dominic McNeil, Grandis is a very competitively priced timber that can be used in a wide variety of applications. “Grandis is one of those versatile timbers that is attractive in its own right – being a light pink – and can be used in a multitude of situations. It’s perfect in 25mm and 38mm thicknesses for mouldings, dress boards, furniture and cabinetry, and at 50mm plus is used for joinery.”

Grandis is easily worked and is available in super-long lengths – up to 4.8 metres.

Dominic says Grandis’ environmental credentials are also an important feature. “It’s 100% FSC ® (FSC-C113479) certified and is plantation-grown, and that’s becoming increasingly important to our customers in Australia and overseas.”

Grandis can also be laminated on special order for projects such as stair treads.
