The year 2015 marked 50 years of involvement in the timber industry for Gareth Lazarides. In 1964 Gareth started as a general trainee with a well known timber company and stayed with them until 1983. During this time he learnt a great deal about the industry and developed a passion for everything timber. Gareth left his employer in 1983 to establish a 'one man' timber trading company.
He pursued his own business with ambition and in 1989 established Lazarides Timber Agencies. The plan was to supply specialised cabinet and furniture timber to various markets including furniture makers, shopfitters, boatbuilders, crafts people and home handymen by drawing supplies from all over Australia, North and South America, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomons, New Zealand, Africa, Europe and several Asian countries; the number of stocked species totalled more than one hundred.
Gareth began operations in a warehouse of approximately 500m2 at Eagle Farm and later moved to a larger storage facility of approximately 1000m2 in the same area. In 2002 Gareth purchased a 1500m2 warehouse on approximately 4000m2 of land at Banyo. This facility is now the present location of Lazarides Timber Agencies (pictured below).
Gareth's son Troy Lazarides joined Gareth in 1993 and played a major role in the Lazarides Timber Agencies expansion. Troy is presently the Manager of the Lazarides warehouse.
Lazarides Timber Agencies is still almost exclusively specialised timber with a range of associated products such as polishes, carving tools, turning chisels, veneers and turning blanks. The company also offers a service for 'dressing to size' timber enabling cabinetmakers and hanymen to move straight into the assembly of their projects.

Gareth has travelled extensively throughout Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, Asia, and North and South America, sourcing supplies for the local markets and selling Australian timbers overseas.
Lazarides Timber Agencies ensure that their great range of species have been harvested in accordance with world practices to ensure sustainability.
