The multimillion-dollar upgrades currently being implemented at Kaituna Sawmill near Blenheim are a resounding endorsement for the sawmill’s engaged and committed team.
Kaituna Sawmill is the wood processing asset owned by Nelson forests Ltd (NFL). NFL itself is owned by Global Forest Partners (GFP), an investment company based in the USA. The sawmill provides 65 full-time equivalent roles.
Kaituna produces some very innovative, high-quality timber products for an extremely competitive global market but, for a number of years, the sawmill has struggled to achieve consistent, year-round energy production using its existing wood-drying technology.
