Davids Timber set to clock up 28 years and still proud of being a pacesetter
Strong relationship with preservative supplier Koppers Performance Chemicals
NEXT YEAR (2018) Davids Timber will be commencing their 28th year in business, distributing products from their Dandenong site. David and Maurice Efron are still very active in the business backed up by a strong management team who have been with the company for many years, including General Manager, Jarod Renowden, Operations Manager, Terry Chinnock, together with Chief Financial Officer, Rosie Garbett as well as Greg Hassan who recently commenced as Sales Manager.
The company started trading in Frankston Dandenong Road, Dandenong in 1990 supplying trade and retail customers with fencing timbers. In the early 90’s the Efron’s made a decision that treated pine was to become the future of the industry, and built their first treatment plant in 1994. At that time, fencing materials were all OB Hardwood, pergola material was Oregon and landscape sleepers were mainly redgum.
Since then, they have forged a strong relationship with their preservative supplier Koppers Performance Chemicals who have assisted Davids Timber to become an industry leader in the timber preservation industry.
The company supplied the trade until 2006. Since then, Davids
Timber have been solely a wholesaler supplying merchants, fencing suppliers, landscape and garden yards, and rural suppliers. The company’s core range of products include Treated Pine preservative treated with CCA, MicroPro and LOSP include Fencing, Landscaping, Structural, Decking and Rounds.
Over the last three years, Davids have been supplying the regional post market and are able to supply a full range of tapered posts throughout Victoria. These products can also be supplied in MicroPro H4 for projects with this requirement.
The company has been operating and distributing from the Princes Highway, Dandenong South site since 2004. All processing including kiln drying and preservative treatment is done at this site. The company delivers in part or full loads to all areas of Victoria on a weekly basis.
The company also owns Broadford Sawmills which produces landscape sleepers and fence rails, which have a name for being the best in the industry.
One of Davids Timber strengths has been to never rest on their laurels, and continuously striving to be better. This year, there has been a focus to streamline the production keeping up with growing demand.
Managing Director, Maurice Efron believes the secret of a great business is the team, and is proud to say “We have a fantastic team with a mixture of experienced and younger team members who are all focused on delivering a high level of customer service and supplying quality treated wood products.”
The future is looking bright for Davids Timber. With strong demand in the building industry, the company is looking forward to continue to supply quality outdoor timber products to the industry. With an on-going commitment by the Davids Timber Team on quality and service, the company will continue to work closely with their suppliers and customers to forge long term relationships with the aim of being the leading supplier of outdoor timber in the industry.
