One of Australia’s largest suppliers of veneered board, Amerind, was recently placed in receivership. Customers of Amerind in the furniture and cabinetmaking sectors have expressed concern about the future supply of veneered board and the industry’s capacity to fill the gap.
Rod Sharp, President of the Timber Veneer Association of Australia, has put those fears to rest. “TVAA’s panel producer members would welcome inquiries from former customers of Amerind”, Rod said. “Other producers in the TVAA membership can supply all the products that Amerind previously handled”.
Anyone looking for a supplier of veneered board is invited to visit the TVAA website at www.timberveneer.asn.au and go to the section How to Find Us where there is a list of panel producers and veneer suppliers in all States.
TVAA also has a number of technical publications available for download which will be helpful to architects, specifiers and people in the industry.
For ideas and examples of outstanding use of veneers TVAA has a sister website at www.uniquelyveneer.com.au which is also well worth a visit.Back to News page
