Allan Lang has worked within the family business for many years and shares his father Max’s passion for timber and the timber industry. The industry is in Allan’s blood; he has very fond memories of joining his father in the timber yard from a very young age and always looked forward to being involved in the family business. 

Based in Brisbane at the Colonial Warehouse showroom and warehouse, Allan’s manages the day-to-day operations. He works closely with the team to maintain the high standard of products, while also continually innovating processes to minimise waste. Allan also focuses on developing the range of Colonial Warehouse styles to the requirements of the customers, expanding the business to meet emerging markets.

Allan works closely with Max, who is based overseas focusing on the research and development sectors of the business. Like Max, Allan is keenly aware of the environmental responsibilities of the company. He ensures that Colonial Warehouse works to the global standard of sustainable practices, using only plantation timber and logging.
