We turn sustainably-grown forestry pine into premium plywood products designed to withstand whatever you throw at them. See how we do that here.

Our Products

We supply the New Zealand market through a network of Builders’ Merchants, and also export to Australia and the Pacific Islands. Our range includes plywood for construction, architectural applications, and specialty uses such as signage.

Increasingly, our plywood is being used for high end interior applications, and we pride ourselves on providing a high grade finish which is second-to-none.

Our Commitments


Wood is the world's oldest construction material and it's also the most sustainable. We're dedicated to using only sustainably sourced pine.


When it comes to building, safety is the most important thing. All our products are compliant to the highest industry standards.


We are industry-leaders in plywood manufacturing and hold certifications which back our commitment to quality.
