Australian Hardwoods

Australian Hardwoods – stronger demand for Jarrah and Victorian Ash than we have seen for sometime. Maybe this reflects that relative to US hardwoods they are becoming cheaper. The demand for a certified Jarrah has come on the back of low demand for a few years. the drying cycle for Jarrah is awfully slow and stock turns are an Accounting nightmare. Victorian Ash sales also appear to be picking up. We are now stocking an Australian Black Butt decking which has been pre coated to supply those that want a PEFC certified non Tropical Hardwood for decking. This is a non bleeding and pre oiled product that is sure to fill the box for many.

Victorian Ash – sales are steady and we seem to be getting more enquiry, albeit not showing up in sales data as yet. A great option and as us dollar denominated species rocket up with exchange rate impact this could make this a better deal??? Still marginal as to if it is cheaper or not, but the look and feel of Victorian Ash is a pleasing look and it has great appeal to some. We stock a wide range of thicknesses and widths to cater for Joinery, fit outs and flooring jobs.

Jarrah – sales steady as well, stock being replenished with more PEFC green sawn timber from Western Australia. The 50mm takes us 12 months to dry and so the process and supply chain is long. We stock 25, 40, and 50mm in widths to 300mm. A great sustainable option.

Black Butt decking provides a non tropical choice to build decks and still use a class 1 durable hardwood.
/imagesdb/Issue/d75b42f9-772a-43f1-a11b-6719e30b728c.jpgSupply chains
Supply chains are groaning at demand for key items. The growth in demand after the GFC has been slow and has seen a large number of sawmills here in NZ and elsewhere close and go broke. This is leading to shortages in supply as the remaining suppliers struggle to cope.
/imagesdb/Issue/b5dc470d-607c-417f-8cf4-bd6d27a1af74.jpgBuilding Activity
Data we see coming through suggest continuing demand for building materials and weather boards as an example are flying out the door. So prospects for Building Supply merchants should be okay.

/imagesdb/Issue/36fabf7e-2add-44b1-9bfb-003a902fb70c.jpgSupply side developments
Lots happening with our supply chains and costs relating to each have their own story.
2015 has so far seen record sales levels but increasing pressure on margins as we see desperate sellers. Contradictory on so many levels but a fact. We ended the financial year 31st March with 2 record months in a row.
