The Ausply plant at Wagga Wagga was established in 1958. In 2007 Big River Group acquired Ausply and invested close to $20mil upgrading both its capability and capacity. With over 110 years in the timber industry, Big River Group is now one of NSW largest private timber manufacturing and marketing businesses, with a diverse business servicing all Australian States and many international projects.

The Company owns and manages sales and distribution outlets in Sydney, Brisbane, Townsville, Melbourne, Adelaide, Illawara, Sunshine Coast, Wagga Wagga and Perth, servicing the construction and building industry as well as the manufacturing sector with a diverse range of timber products and other associated construction materials.

These products are sourced from both our own manufacturing facility, as well as many of Australia’s leading manufacturers of timber and building products. Our operations employ some 350 staff, giving Big River a fully integrated position from the sourcing of logs from State Forests of NSW, right through to the sale of the finished product to the final end customer.

Our Wagga Wagga mill produces structural plywood products using radiata pine sourced from managed regrowth and plantation forest timbers, with full Chain of Custody certification under AS4707.
In addition to the standard plywood products people are familiar with, we also manufacture specialised plywood for; Roof and Floor Applications | Decorative panels | Concrete formwork (Formply and Steel Decking) | Bridge Ply | Anti Slip Ply | Sound Barriers

All our plywood products are manufactured and stress graded to the relevant Australian Standards and certified by the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA).
