Swadlings Timber & Hardware want to help create a sustainable timber industry that benefits future generations.
That is why we have created Future Forests. It’s simple. We plant a tree for every tree we use.
This vision has come from a family business that plays a significant part in the history and success of Australia’s milling and timber industry. In 1844, Cornelius Swadling was born to a sawyer and carpenter in Lane Cove, NSW, and went on to create the timber business C. Swadling and Sons, Pyrmont. His son Arthur William followed in the tradition and founded A.W. Swadling Timber & Hardware. Today, Cornelius’ great-grandsons Mark and Chris serve the industry with quality timber and expert advice, with Chris providing the best in reclaimed heritage and hardwood timbers at Ironwood Australia, and Mark running Sydney’s most trusted timber retailer, Swadlings Timber & Hardware.
For over 100 years, the Swadling family has proudly served Sydney and NSW with quality timber and hardware. We hope our Future Forests vision and the sustainable work we do today benefits our great grandchildren and this important Australian industry.
