About Us

We are a family company who manufacture glue laminated timber beams and have been operating since 2003.

One of our biggest challenges is dealing with our waste timber. We felt it was important to minimise our timber waste, so we installed our first briquette machine in 2011. Since then, we have upgraded our sawdust extraction system which included another briquette machine. This allows us to capture all our timber waste and turn it into valuable briquettes used as firewood.

We initially sold briquettes in plastic bags and since the upgrade to cardboard boxes in 2019, our briquettes has been selling out and distributed to a number of stores across Victoria. In 2020, we started working with Vinnies Victoria, to manufacture and supply briquettes for the Vinnies Eco Wood For Good product, which now sells across a number of Vinnies shops in Australia.

Executive GM Jeff Antcliff says, “Vinnies Victoria are proud to support a family owned Victorian business, while distributing a product that assists the community.” “This product ticks a lot of boxes with us. It supports the circular economy by diverting waste product sawdust from landfill, creates an eco-friendly option for our eco-conscious customers, and profits go back to the community. Incredibly this product relates back to our origins where our founder Frederick Ozanam began giving firewood to the poor in 1833″
