One of Maryborough’s leading advanced manufacturers is set to open their doors to the public this month, giving business peers and curious minds the chance to learn about the local manufacturing innovations making a big stamp on the market.
Hyne Timber will provide a site tour of their facility Tuesday 21 May, 9am.
The event is part of the Palaszczuk Government’s Inside Advanced Manufacturing series, which is running statewide 20-24 May and offers behind-the-scenes, expert-guided facility tours, showcasing the new techniques and technologies transforming the sector.
Member for Maryborough Bruce Saunders commended Hyne Timber for sharing their knowledge and expertise with others.
“As one of Australia’s largest producers of sawn timber products, Hyne Timber is a leader in preservative treatments and an iconic supplier to the nation’s construction industry,” Mr Saunders said.
“The company is a world-class manufacturer with environmental standards that reinforce its commitment to sustainably grown plantation timber production and supply in Australia.
“Hyne Timber is also a leader in technology implementation, product development and quality control, and has adopted leading-edge technologies like laser scanning, acoustic technology and vision scanning to stay at the forefront of timber manufacturing and design.
“Inside Advanced Manufacturing celebrates the best of the sector right across Queensland, and it’s fantastic that a great local business is involved in this initiative.”
Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said the Palaszczuk Government is committed to ensuring Queensland manufacturers have the support they need to grow locally and extend their reach globally.
“Since we launched our Advanced Manufacturing 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan in 2016, we have made significant progress in bringing new advanced manufacturing jobs, innovation and opportunities to Queensland,” Mr Dick said.
“Manufacturing is vital to growing and diversifying our state’s economy and creating the jobs of the future, and our government is pleased to help shine a light on the local businesses who are innovating in Queensland and employing more Queenslanders.”
