Wespine Industries

The 50 per cent-owned Wespine Industries (Wespine) operates a plantation softwood sawmill in Dardanup, Western Australia. Wespine manufactures structural timber used in the construction industry along with landscaping, packaging and other timber products. Wespine experienced the full range of trading conditions over the year. New home building is the primary driver of structural timber demand and the year commenced with WA housing approvals near record lows but finished very strongly. Wespine recorded timber sales of $111 million, leaving finished goods inventory near zero and production constrained by log supply. Safety continues to be a focus for management with initiatives relating to both risk identification and reduction including cultural change. Recordable injuries declined significantly during the period. For more information on Wespine, please visit www.wespine.com.au
