Our Story

Family is at the heart of our business

In 1976 Con Peluso established a local, family owned timber business. Over the past 40 years, that business has grown from a retail timber outlet into one of Melbourne’s leading wholesalers of timber, flooring and panel products for residential and commercial construction, infrastructure projects and the manufacturing sector.

City Timber is now a second generation family business, run by Con’s sons Tony and Joe, who have employed their business and IT skills to expand into a national supplier of timber products. The importance of family values is embedded in City Timber’s culture. It’s not uncommon for customers to deal with employees who have been with us for over 20 years. That sense of family extends to all stakeholders, including our customers and suppliers. We pride ourselves on building sustainable long term partnerships and enjoy supplier relationships that are still strong after 35 years.

Con, Tony and Joe’s heritage brings the business into the heart of their family. City Timber’s philosophy is that honesty and transparency are the strongest foundation for long term relationships. These connections with our stakeholders allow us to fulfill our commitment to procure high quality, responsibly sourced timber products and innovative finishes for our customers.
