Since its establishment in 1987 in Five Dock, NSW, Independent Timber Importers (ITI) has been on a mission to redefine the timber industry wholesale/distribution landscape. ITI has worked closely with industry suppliers, customers and associations to promote the strength, beauty and environmental benefits of using timber. At the same time ITI redefined the role of the wholesaler with its distribution and service models. With its large investments in distribution centres, product development, people and service standards in early 2002 ITI dropped the name Independent Timber Importers and replaced this with ITI and introduced the new logo with the “Innovative Timber Ideas” phrase which more accurately describes the attitude of the company. Today ITI consists of 9 distribution sites across Australia with 130,000m2 of undercover storage, a state of the art remanufacturing, treating and priming plant in Chile, an office in Indonesia, 2 distribution locations in New Zealand and growing sales in the USA. True to its name, the success of ITI lies in its commitment to innovation in both service and product development. This commitment has led to the development of premier brands such as Design Pine and EziTrim Plus, the distribution of market-leading products such as KlevaKlip, Weathertex and Modwood. ITI has also led the way with service standards winning countless industry awards for its service. ITI’s reputation for quality, agility and unparalleled customer service has seen annual sales grow to $400 million, whilst its deep understanding of the Australian market has cemented its status as an industry leader in the production and distribution of world-class, socially- and environmentally-sustainable timber solutions.

Knauf is a synomym for gypsum - among construction experts and enthusiasts. This proverbial association of a building material with a manufacturer’s name is not just a coincidence. It is the result of decades of hard work and consistently high quality.

The fact is, if you say Knauf, you mean dependability. Our group of companies had comparably humble beginnings. Specifically, the family company was established in 1932, when brothers Alfons and Karl Knauf secured the mining rights to gypsum deposits in the Schengen community (Obermosel) in Germany. Courage, determination, and business savvy were the reasons that only a year later Knauf established its first gypsum factory in Perl (Moselle) – laying the foundation for what would later be the Knauf Group.

About Mitek

MiTek® is a diversified global supplier of software, engineered products, services and automated manufacturing equipment to the building industry. MiTek's more than 7,000 worldwide team members pride themselves on delivering breakthroughsin building that accelerate the genius of its customers. A Berkshire Hathaway company since 2001, MiTek has a record of continuous growth and innovation over the last 60 years. Learn more at www.MII.com. If you live in a house built or renovated since 1960, chances are that you're enjoying the benefits of MiTek's products and engineering. That's because it was in the 60's that MiTek's connector plate revolutionised house construction by introducing prefabricated timber roof trusses using multi-tooth connectors. These connectors - small steel plates with integral 'teeth' on one side - made it possible to efficiently prefabricate timber roof trusses for the first time. In the mid 1990's the PosiStrut parallel chord truss floor and roof system were added, as were a whole range of building products to connect timber in virtually any building application. The development of this technology has made building in the housing, commercial, industrial and multi-residential sectors a lot quicker, saving labour costs and ensuring projects are completed on time, despite ever tighter construction schedules - critical in an industry where speed and reliability are paramount. And it's made trusses and frames a lot more accurate because they're manufactured in the factory to precise design specifications using sophisticated computer technology. MiTek Australia does not actually manufacture trusses - we leave that to our licensed fabricators who are experts in the field. Instead, we concentrate on making sure that our fabricators have the very best systems and technology. This enables them to manufacture wall frames and roof and floor trusses efficiently and accurately while maintaining high standards of quality and service. As part of the international MiTek group, we are committed to quality assurance and customer service in the supply of connector plates, engineering software and relative services to the building industry. The name MiTek and Gang-Nail building products are synonymous with quality building systems, software and prefabricated timber trusses; so much so that the company was the first connector plate company in Australia to receive certification under international quality standard ISO 9001. The ISO 9001 certification covers the design, manufacture and supply of a range of structural connectors and other fasteners for prefabricated timber trusses and wall frames for the building industry: •    The design and supply of computer software for fabricator design, estimating and production planning. •    A design service for timber structures. •    The supply of truss plant machinery. So when you deal with MiTek or a MiTek licensed fabricator, you can be sure you're getting the best in advice, resources, manufacturing facilities and product quality that you'll find anywhere in the industry.
