We’re Australia’s largest independent distributor of wood panel, timber and decorative surface materials.
Currently located in all major Australian capital cities including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, as well as Cairns and Townsville, our presence extends internationally with offices in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, London and Moscow. ForestOne is driven by a passion for innovation, responsible sourcing and great customer service. More than a trusted building supplier, we’re focused on offering building solutions to customers.
Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, and our staff takes pride in our ability to serve them.
In addition, our range of products will continue to expand in the new year, so make sure you’ve signed up to our newsletter to find out more about our new product launches.
For over 140 years, ForestOne has been a major player in the building industry, focused on excellent sourcing and supplying commodity and decorative products nationally – previously under the name Gunnersen.
We began in timber and grew into wall panels from floors to ceilings. This led to
the inception of DesignerPly and a new way of thinking, selling, and servicing.
We’re immensely proud of our history, yet excited about what is around the corner.
The next chapter
And now we embark on a new chapter, as a blending of four companies; Gunnersen, Australian Forest Products, Crown Timber, and ForestOne International together as ForestOne.
This is so much more than a name change; it’s a new business ethos.
ForestOne steps into the future with some of the most innovative and premium quality products in the markets, always sourced ethically and with the needs of our customers at the core.
We are committed to environmental sustainability and responsible sourcing, promoting and supplying certified forest products.
ForestOne has been importing timber into Australia since 1879. Australian and privately owned, ForestOne sources forest products from suppliers around the world and distributes from seven warehouses across Australia.
As a natural and potentially sustainable resource, well managed forests from which forest products are produced provide significant and measurable environmental
and economic benefits to communities, regions, countries and consumers. Forestry, as the husbandry of these resources, encompasses the protection of biodiversity, maintenance of ecosystems, landscaping and watercourse protection, and also provides socio-economic benefits to local communities.
Part of our commitment involves supplying only from legal sources, and wherever possible supplying products that are certified under either FSC® or RW/PEFC Chain of Custody (CoC). These organisations have developed strict standards outlining what is required to ensure forests are well managed.
Every organisation along the supply chain from a certified forest must meet additional standards relating to quality systems, material sourcing, production controls, transaction documentation, and labeling. Only those products that have come from an unbroken chain of certified organisations can claim these certifications.
What does our commitment
mean for you
FSC can be found in 81 countries all over the world. FSC certification is internationally recognised as the most rigorous environmental and social standard for responsible forest management. Visit https://au.fsc.org/en-au
Certification scheme (PEFC)
PEFC endorses national forest certification systems developed through multi-stakeholder processes and tailored to local priorities and conditions. Visit https://www.pefc.org
RW pioneered the development of certification standards for wood and wood products sourced from sustainably managed forests in Australia. Their standards provide guidance and accountability for forest managers, manufacturers and suppliers. Visit https://www.responsiblewood.org.au
