Sustainable and Eco-friendly

In 2008, Matthew Malec recognised the significance of timber as the only truly sustainable building material and became involved in forestry management, timber production and sales of Australian softwoods to domestic and international users.

By introducing an eco-friendly approach to land management and harvesting, the Malec business attracted and grew support from local plantation owners and harvesting operators across the east coast of Australia and beyond.

As the demand grew, so did the size of our enterprise, from one to more than a hundred trucks, all loaded with Malec containers headed for ports across the globe. They carry timber from our plantations as we continue to regrow (some on their second-and-third generation) to supply the world with this sustainable resource – timber.

Malec has a Forestry Management Policy please email us for copy.
