MRG Connections has a number of quality and reliable New Zealand based suppliers. We work very closely with each supplier to ensure that we can offer our customers the best quality and most consistent Radiata Pine products.  Please find below a list of suppliers


Tregoweth Sawmill

Tregoweth Sawmill was first established in Te Kuiti in the 1940's as a native timber sawmill by Richard H. Tregoweth.

He was a pioneer in the King Country, moving from location to location, processing native logs for farmers and clearing the land. Finally in 1946 he settled at our present site in Te Kuiti.

For decades the sawmill had its own bush and logging crews and transported most of its logs and timber. In the early 1990's this came to an end due to economic viability

Between 1992 and 1996 the mill also moved from cutting native timber to solely cutting Radiata Pine. During this time extra processing facilities were built on-site to add value to our products.

Today Tregoweth are millers, processors and exporters of quality New Zealand timber, dedicated to serving both the domestic and export market with sustainable Radiata Pine. By focusing on this niche market, they are able to deliver top value and quality to our customers.

Kiwi Lumber's modern sawmills are strategically situated close to the large commercial plantings in the Hawke’s Bay/Wairarapa and the Central Plateau of the North Island. These areas represent significant commercially grown forests, which are well serviced by professional contractors, harvesters and forest managers to ensure that customers have access to some of the best renewable timber resources available.
