About Us

Pukepine Sawmills was established in 1998 at the current site in Te Puke and a few years later they added Purepine Mouldings as a complimentary operation. The Tanner family have been involved in sawmill ownership for over 30 years bringing a wealth of knowledge to the business.

For Ken it all started at a young age when his father owned and operated a mill near Te Kuiti (Central North Island, New Zealand). They say ‘when sawdust is in the blood’ it is certainly hard to get out! They continues to lead the way in sawmill innovation with such things as ISO certification and leading edge mill technology as they develop a company that has a strong customer focus.
