Posts & Preservation

Complementing AKD’s 'stump to store' philosophy, AKD Softwoods owns 2 post and preservation business:

  • Portland Pine Products – based in Heywood, Victoria
  • Jelfor Timbers - operating from South East Victoria

These businesses are manufacturers of quality treated roundwood products, with a focus on primarily servicing institutional and wholesale customers, producing posts and preservation products for agricultural, viticultural applications and building industries throughout Australia, such as strainers, fence posts, etc.

Treated timber is extensively used in Australia for all kinds of outdoor projects from garden edging to pergolas and countless other uses. It is well accepted as a great building material for all outdoor jobs. With a life span of up to 40 years, it is ideal for any in-ground use due to its exceptional moisture resistant qualities. A wide range of treated pine sawn timber is also sold to local builders, contractors and general handymen.

All treating and quality control managements are to Australian and International standards.
