Australian Sustainable Hardwoods (ASH) is a privately-owned Australian timber mill and manufacturer.
Established over 30 years ago, ASH has grown to become one of the largest hardwood mills in Australia.
Leveraging automation and economy of scale, ASH operates six on-site manufacturing lines to value-add timber from log to finished product. These include moulding, laminating, finger-jointing, deep splitting, set length docking and mass-timber production.
The timber species in the Australian Sustainable Hardwoods range include Victorian ash, American Oak and Mountain Grey Gum, with products being used in a range of residential and commercial structures across Australia.
By joining NBS Source, ASH’s products can now be easily accessed during the design and specification process. This allows architects and designers to instantly find the technical product information they need when adding Australian hardwood to their designs.
According to ASH’s Marketing Manager, Megan Parameshwaran “NBS is data-driven – it takes technical product data and puts it in a format that is specifier focused. It streamlines the specification process by integrating into everyday practices, which is something we have not seen before.”
Leveraging the technology on offer from NBS Source is enabling ASH to gain recognition as a supplier that is taking proactive steps to improve the design process for its clients.

Through NBS, specifiers have another point of contact with our brand. Not only can they find out product information, but specific sizes and features which streamlines their decision-making process. As a result of our partnership with NBS Source, specifiers have a better understanding of our products with the ultimate goal of specification and use. We want our product information to be as straightforward and easily accessible for architects, which is something NBS provides.

By accessing NBS Source, specifiers can find and browse ASH products using intuitive search and select and compare features. Using structured properties, values and technical information, they can specify products directly into their specification via full integration with NBS Chorus.
NBS Source integrates seamlessly into the specifier’s project workflow and provides an additional level of enhanced technical product data. This is delivered in a consistent, structured format, reducing the time that architects and specifiers need to spend searching for product information across the web, via phone or manual brochure searches.
By partnering with NBS Source, manufacturers like ASH are putting themselves at the forefront of digital design technology and enabling their clients to access a faster, more efficient design process.
