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 generations bringing a wealth of knowledge to the business.
For Ken Tanner 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 continue to lead the way in sawmill innovation adopting leading edge mill technology as they develop a company that has a strong customer focus capable of target producing to meet demand.
Brother’s Jeff and Paul Tanner have now continued the family tradition and run the joint Pukepine Sawmills and Purepine Mouldings operation in Te puke and also the Kerepehi distribution centre employing over 150 staff across all the sites.
