After more than 25 years in the business, we have a reputation for fast turnaround of difficult and unusual milling jobs and also handle machining and special requests including milling and machining of native species and imported hardwoods.

"Tauriko Sawmill is unusual in the types of timber it mills. Although we do Radiata Pine, we mainly concentrate on the other niche exotics, including Macrocarpa, Douglas Fir, Lawson's Cypress, Red Gum, Poplar and Japanese Cedar. Rob and Michael are targeting niche buyers who appreciate that the features of these species are more desirable than Radiata and not much more, cost-wise. They are used as feature elements in building, furniture and joinery."

"We sort of do things that normal mills can't do - they haven't got the versatility and the plant capable of taking oversize logs for example. They are geared towards high production, high volume and low margin. We are low volume, higher margin. At a fraction of the turnover."
