As a young engineering graduate, Thomas Cullity started Cullity Timbers in 1928
In 1928 Thomas Cullity, the son of Irish immigrants, started Cullity Timbers in Perth Western Australia. It was the beginning of an association between the Cullity name and the timber industry that endures to this day.
The Cullity family – and a team of investors and industry experts – formed Wesbeam in 2001.
Three years and $115 million dollars later, the first billet of Wesbeam laminated veneer lumber rolled off the production line. We’d built a better wood.
Today, Wesbeam is an Australian-owned, unlisted public company whose Board and Senior Management have over 70 years’ experience in the manufacture and sale of timber and wood panel products.
