The first shipment of CLT has arrived at Port Botany and Shane was there to crack open the containers with our Bunnings reps along with a film crew to capture the moment earlier this week.
This is an exciting milestone for us, we’ve been on this journey researching and studying the use and benefits of CLT for a few years now and here we are, opening the first container load of panels destined for the Macarthur Gardens Project – our our first CLT High Rise.
One of the key factors supporting our launch into CLT is that we have partnered with Binderholz (a massive CLT supplier based in Austria), to ensure we receive the highest quality materials, a strong supply chain and experience that spans generations.
Our Alliance with Binderholz also gives Strongbuild exclusive distribution rights in Australasia – meaning any enquiries Binderholz receives for their product within the Australasian area will be directed to Strongbuild to manage.
We believe Strongbuild and Binderholz form a perfect match. Binderholz is the largest CLT and Gluelam supplier in the world and has been operating for more than 60 years. It is a family business entirely run by the Binder family and is driven by the same passion for timber, innovation and quality as us.
We recently hosted the CEO and Sales Director from Binderholz, here in Australia, the wealth of knowledge and experience they bring to the team is fantastic – they are enthusiastic and totally committed to our combined journey.
