About

Melbourne Timber Manufacturing Pty Ltd (“MTM”) is a timber sourcing and processing business located in Mordialloc in Victoria.  At its heart, the business predominantly transforms sustainably harvested Australian hardwood timber into value added timber products.  This is done through a combination of contract production for major companies, and development and production of innovative timber products for licensing and direct sales to wholesale and retail customers.  The business was established in 1987 and for almost 30 years is recognized by customers for its ability to provide innovative and specialist solutions at competitive prices.=

With substantial investment in joining and moulding technology, and significant stocks of sustainably sourced timber on site we utilise this technology, to recover and add value to timber that is destined for low value use and transform it into high value, durable timber products. This process allows the recovery of a greater amount of timber from each tree to be used for high grade products.

Sourced directly from Australian sawmills. We work with sawmills seeking their lower value boards, to reclaim value by offering a higher return to the mill than the shorts were destined to give.

These boards are then ‘gauged’ or skip dressed to a uniform size to allow for grading and colour sorting. Split ends are docked off, if needed, and the individual boards are joined into the required lengths. This is an Engineered Set Length.

The Engineered Set Lengths are machined to the required profile – decking, cladding, lining, screens, joinery, structural timber sizes, mouldings, trims.

Factory applied pre-coats, anti-stain, treatments and primers. Full timber surface coating by Vacuum, Flood or Spray coats. Selected surface coating by spray or brush systems. Specialist pre-coats – Fire Resistance/Flame Retardant, Termites, tannin/stain seal, preserves, oils.
