Porta Timber has been supplying the Australian market with high quality timber and moulding products for over 70 years. In John Meehan's words 'Bison were an obvious choice' when they needed a new sawmill and warehouse for their plant in Bridgewater. We were able to work together in the design phase to meet John's specific requirements and construction went ahead efficiently and safely. The new buildings, commissioned in November 2019, have introduced great efficiencies into Porta's day to day operation and provided for growth now and into the future.

“It was great to work with Porta throughout the design and construct phase, to build a cost-effective and superior Sawmill and Dry Storage area, using the Bison solution. Great company to work with.”

Bradley Bissett - Project Manager
It was a huge benefit to us to have Bison's experience on the ground in terms of a large installation like this.
