We have improved and further developed the original “Scrimber” process which was invented and patented by Australia’s Common Wealth and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) and its partners. When acquired by TimTek, the process needed additional engineering and machinery changes. TimTek spent considerable monies and energies with the help of the staff at Mississippi State University in Starkville, MS to improve and test the process. We can, today, claim that we have a very economical and environmentally acceptable answer to producing high quality engineered lumber and timbers for the North American and world markets.
TimTek, LLC, recently licensed GrassBuilt Industries, to build a commercial plant, which will be our first operating plant in North America.
We are also working on licensing at least one plant in Canada. Our goal is to license one plant a year for the next 5 years.
