ABOUT SYNERGY TIMBER

Synergy Timber started out as a timber merchant of Asian timber species. We are located in Melbourne, Australia. Our suppliers have over the past 30 years built strong and credible export markets throughout Europe, North and South America and Australasia. The relationships we have with our suppliers are very strong given the fact that they are not only business associates but also close family friends. Our agents with extensive networks and knowledge in the industry have also helped Synergy Timber to expand our market Australia-wide.

Our supplies centre on manufacturers of windows and doors joinery, flooring, outdoor and indoor paneling, decking and general construction. Over the years in trading, we have been successful to deal with some of the most reputable organizations throughout the aforementioned industry sub groups. In addition, we have built upon our business in offering fully value added products including specialized timber treatments whilst concurrently servicing those who require supplies in raw form.

At Synergy Timber, we understand the underlying objectives of customers need and requirement. Not only do we want to embark on understanding the core business operation, we always go the extra step by offering value to our customers. We work hand in hand with personnel from all levels in the organization to research, explore and discuss on ways to optimize production methods. We are also very fair business individuals and in all contexts, we always give full and careful consideration to all parties involved.

We also have a relationship with the largest producer of a Victorian timber species where capacity exceeds 150,000 tons annually.
