Refresh gives firm a positive outlook

A CHANGE of name and a new attitude for the former Dale and Meyers operations has reinvigorated one of the Fraser Coast's oldest businesses.

Managing director John McNamara joined the timber company in January this year.

The company had since steadily been working to become DTM Timber, before making the switch in June.

"I think it has had a very positive impact," Mr McNamara said.

"The perception of the company in the marketplace has changed."

DTM Timber is now close to celebrating its 25th year in business after facing financial difficulties through the global financial crisis.

The business was forced to close its retail operations around the state in early 2011.

Mr McNamara said the team had worked hard to get out of financial issues since then and was now in a position to move forward.

The timber company started in Maryborough in 1988 and now has its head office, logistics, logging and other operations all based in Maryborough.

It also has a plant in Rockhampton and processings sites in Tiaro, Casino, Mundubbera and Nundle.
