In a world facing dwindling resources, atmospheric pollution and global warming, wood represents our most renewable raw material, a truly natural product which can be grown and consumed indefinitely.
Collectively the forestry and wood industry is New Zealand’s third largest industry contributing an enormous amount to our economy and making up over 12% of New Zealand’s export earnings.
As a member of NZ Wood, Purepine Mouldings Limited’s business practices are in line with those of this organisation.

Sustainability is a vital policy for us.
We source all our logs from sustainable plantation forests found around the Bay of Plenty, Waikato and Poverty Bay and choose with great care to ensure they meet the specifications of the products required from them.
Optimising the timber to reduce wastage is vital. To this end we are use highly customised technology based systems to maximise the amount of timber we can use. Being efficient everywhere is important. A good example is the use of waste sawdust and shavings as bio fuel to produce heat for the kiln drying operation.
We believe this type of focus is paramount to sustainable outcome for future generations.
