Despite improvements in productivity and trading since acquiring the Millfield sawmill in the
third quarter of 2021, the last few weeks of the year proved to be particularly demanding
with a COVID shut down, extended wet weather and related log supply shortages.
Early sign in 2022 look encouraging was the purchase of a much-needed new four-wheel
utility loader and the log yard well stocked.
This year the Sweetman Renewable Timbers’ sawmill and timber processing facility is
looking forward to continuing to support our existing and new customers.
Efforts will be focussed on further improving sawmill productivity, securing additional log
supplies from certified private property sources, and broadening the product range.
Now the only hardwood sawmill and wood processing facility between Sydney and
Newcastle, Sweetman Renewable Timbers will be paying attention to strengthening log
supplies, continuing to support sustainable forest management practices, climate change
abatement measures, timber product range expansion and supporting a wide range of
wholesale, industrial, building, manufacturing and retail customers.
We are looking forward to seeing you in 2022!
