We’ve all heard about supporting products made in Australia but we usually associate it with food and clothing. Now it is becoming more important in the building industry.

Buying Australian made products supports Australian businesses, the economy and jobs. And it makes sense environmentally as products produced here have not travelled far to be used here – resulting in lower carbon miles. But more significantly, building products made in Australia are strictly regulated to adhere to standards and to perform as they state. Carter Holt Harvey (CHH) plywood is EWPAA certified for peace of mind; complies with Australian and New Zealand standards including structural plywood (AS/NZS 2269: 2012); and is available FSC® Chain of Custody certified.

Trusted CHH brands, ECOply®, PLYfloor® and FORMrite® are produced in Australia at Myrtleford, Victoria by their local manufacturing team, using locally grown timber. The Myrtleford mill is world-class and is actually the largest plywood producer in Australia. ECOply, PLYfloor and FORMrite are recognised as high quality products that regularly outperform cheap alternatives.

Australian made plywood is strong and durable and has a relatively low carbon footprint. It’s becoming a favourite of Australian builders and architects. As Rory Toomey of Environa Studios says about a recent project, ‘We specified Carter Holt Harvey ECOply for the peace of mind – you can trust the product.’
