Pentarch Forest Products Pty Ltd is the timber trading division of the Pentarch Group. The Group is based in Melbourne and has a series of regional offices at each port. The timber division's focus is on the procurement of products from across Australia and New Zealand. In Australia, the group is active in all states and territories.
Over the past 19 years it has become one of Australia's leading suppliers of timber products to the markets of Asia and the Middle East. It is a major exporter of plantation grown Radiata pine and selected "true" hardwoods from Australia and New Zealand. In more recent years the group developed a range of sawn and roundwood logs for sale. The logistics support that accompanies the procurement effort is extensive.
Commencing in 1993 with initial shipments to Korea the company has successfully expanded its operations to supplying customers in Japan, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, India, Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates. These sales are generally conducted on a sale directly to an end purchaser with Pentarch arranging the ocean freight and land forwarding in the purchaser's country.
