About Us

Family-owned & operated company
providing quality building materials
to Officer, Grantville & surrounds

Van Steensel Timbers Pty Ltd was established by Jan Van Steensel back in 1965. 

The store begun by selling recycled timber which then expanded to sell a wide range of building supplies along with providing wood machining services. 

With the success of the first store in Officer, Jan and Freda decided to open at a second location in 1990 in Grantville. Their four sons now operate both the Officer and Grantville stores. 

Peter and David manage the business in Officer while Bruce and Stephen manage the Grantville store. 

It is with this family and community focus that we are able to provide the best service possible, and it is what sets us apart from the rest. 

Jan has created a legacy within the area of Officer and Grantville that lives on through his children and grandchildren.

Great customer service, excellent products, premium grade timber at competitive rates. Do not hesitate to ask questions as staff are eager to offer their expertise & knowledge & their experience is invaluable. Thank You Van Steensel's
