Nannup Timber Processing
Nannup Timber Processing is a producer of
high quality Jarrah and Marri timber.
Jarrah hardwood is processed into flooring,
furniture components and other pre-dressed
and finished dressed products.
We only mill Jarrah which is harvested from
Western Australian State managed sustainable forests.
Established in 1926
Nannup Mill was established in 1926 as the Kauri Timber Company.
One of its features was a vertical log band mill
of American design, which transferred from Ellis Creek Mill, halfway between Nannup and Bridgetown. Ellis Creek Mill closed in 1925.
Today’s mill began operation in 1964 when Douglas Jones Pty Ltd bought the Kauri Timber Company.
The mill was sold to Millars Pty Ltd in 1972 and was secured by Sotico in the Millars takeover in 1983.
It was operated by Sotico until May 2001 when it was sold to M&B Sales Pty Ltd. The mill is now operated by Nannup Timber Processing Pty Ltd,
an associated company of M&B Sales Pty Ltd.
Under M&B Sales the mill has been upgraded and
value adding processing facilities introduced.
The Nannup Timber Processing mill is designed to mill Jarrah
(Eucalyptus Marginata) which is harvested from Western
Australia’s state managed forests.
These sustainable forests are managed by the Forests Products
Commission. FPC’s management strategies ensure that much of
Western Australia’s hardwood forests are protected in reserves
and national parks which cannot be logged.
The majority of the Jarrah and Karri forests are protected in this way.
The remainder of the forests are managed for multiple uses
including recreation, tourism, flora and fauna conservation and
timber supply. All old growth Jarrah forests are now fully protected.
Areas set aside for timber supply are logged on a sustained yield
basis. This means that there are always more trees being grown
