Dwellingup Sawmill was established in 2005, and is owned and run by Jay Branson. Jay has been involved in the Sawmilling Industry almost his entire life, beginning when he was a toddler coming to work with his Mother Shirley, who ran the office at Mandurah Sawmills.
Jay grew up around the sawmill and gained a passion for the industry at a young age, getting his first part time job at the Mandurah Sawmill at the age of 16. When he finished Secondary Schooling, he completed a Trade Certificate as a fitter and turner and worked in that industry for 7 years. In 2001 he made the transition back to sawmilling and took on the position of Manager for the Coli Timber Products Sawmill in Dwellingup. In 2005. Jay purchased the sawmill, and the name Dwellingup Sawmill was created. Jay was able to use his trade skills to rebuild and streamline a new production mill that caters for the demands of modern day sawmilling, while still keeping the original sawmill traditions in place.
The sawmill has an experienced team of workers that have a strong passion for this industry, and work together to ensure the standard of Jarrah production remains at a superior standard.
As Dwellingup is a small town, the need to support other businesses and community groups in our area is important. We are always happy and willing to contribute to the fundraising and community events that help keep our small town running.
