About DTM

DTM Timber has been in operation since 1988. From humble beginnings we have expanded rapidly to the large logging, sawmilling, timber treatment and structural quality timber distribution and sales business that exists today.

Over the past few years the Directors have overseen the integration and rationalisation of the Company’s’ diverse product range. The business has managed to consolidate through the Global Financial Crisis and is now in a position to move forward stronger than ever. In January 2012 the business decided on a name change from Dale and Meyers Operations to DTM Timber.

Our primary focus is on the hardwood structural grade market, and we have successfully established a wholesale customer base throughout Queensland, which now includes all the major hardware chains, timber outlets and landscape yards. As the need to more fully utilise resources grew, we established our paling mill, commissioned a modern CCA treatment plant and entered the power pole and round building pole markets.

As our horizons have broadened, we have optimised global opportunities and now enjoy strong export relationships with New Zealand, Fiji, New Guinea and other Pacific nations.

In 2012 a strategic decision was made to sell off the tradestores and focus on the core business of cutting structural timber and producing power poles and Cross Arms for the energy market. At this time Dale and Meyers Operations was rebranded as DTM Timber.
