BT Tasmanian Dry Mill Upgrade
Britton Timbers continuous improvement programme has now seen a major upgrade to its Tasmanian dry mill production facility. A Marinus Powermax end-matcher has been imported from Europe, and that has meant a total reconfiguration of the flooring line.
This significant investment in new technology will provide for more product flexibility to meet customer’s requirements. For the technically-minded, the upgrade has also involved increasing the dry mill by approximately 300m2, re-positioning the moulders and the inclusion of new docking lines and associated transfer and cueing decks.
At our Brisbane distribution centre, a new state manager has been appointed and a kiln has been installed to facilitate on-site drying of a range of species.
