Acora began operations in 1967 as Reneco Engineering, a small specialist company manufacturing logging forks and similar equipment for the timber industry. The business expanded to fill a growing need for the manufacture and installation of equipment for the hardwood timber industry, and in 1990 the company again took a new direction into providing similar services to the softwood industry.

The company's managing director is Roger Timms, who grew up in the coastal town of Eden in New South Wales, where the company now has a fully-equipped workshop and administration facilities. Roger has extensive experience in the sawmill engineering industry.

Being a family owned company our business philosophy is based on developing strong relationships with clients and staff.
