  • Implementing exemplar health and safety practices in the workplace, ensuring our contractors and clients are safe on the job.

Our export opportunities ensures our clients are provided with excellent market diversity, integrated supply chains, and vital market knowledge and insight. In the domestic market FHM sells logs to all reputable and trustworthy sawmills within the vicinity of our client’s forests.
