Carter Holt Harvey emphasises the importance of using Australian made products, especially in the building industry.
Supporting products made in Australia is usually associated with food and clothing. However, it is equally important and relevant in the Australian building industry. Buying Australian made products supports Australian businesses, the economy and jobs. Additionally, one can gain from environmental benefits too since locally produced goods don’t need to travel far, resulting in lower carbon miles.
Most importantly, building products made in Australia are strictly regulated to adhere to standards for quality and performance.
Carter Holt Harvey (CHH) plywood is EWPAA certified, 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. All three CHH brands are recognised as high quality products that regularly outperform cheap alternatives. Fast becoming a preferred choice of Australian builders and architects, Australian made plywood is strong and durable and has a relatively low carbon footprint.
