Top quality timber products
Northpine is an award-winning firm who use trees from sustainably-managed Northland forests to produce top quality timber products. Northpine ensures it is a responsible, environmentally aware company and works hard to minimise any adverse impact of its operations on the environment.
Radiata Pine trees grown in Northland have a superior density. Northpine utilises this density and tree characteristics to produce a full range of structural timber products, including the specialist products marketed under the Northbeam brand. The Northbeam range has a distribution yard in Silverdale and offers large-dimension, long length and H5 treated product. The timber of these Northland pine trees are strong and this means Northpine can produce timber products which compete with steel or engineered wood products, but have the added advantage of combining the warmth and beauty of solid wood with outstanding structural performance.
Each structural member is tested to ensure it meets the required standard
Northpine can also provide one-off production runs for clients at the Waipu sawmill and a complete range of standard structural components for house framing is manufactured at Waipu. Each structural member is tested to ensure it meets the required standard rather than relying on appearance. These test results are further audited by an independent third party. Each sawmill now creates their own grade rules that allow them to generate products that meet or exceed the specified criteria – and these products are then tested to ensure they are “fit for purpose”. Northpine are consistently looking to identify new systems and products to meet the needs of customers.
Northpine is an active and enthusiastic supporter of the Waipu local community
Northpine sponsors numerous rugby and league clubs, schools and individuals and contribute their support whenever possible.
