About Us

Mainly we supplied a lot of native timbers that were still quite plentiful in those days. Some Pine framing and clears both treated and untreated.

As the native logging became more restricted, we diversified into more New Zealand timber such as NZ Oregon (Douglas Fir) Macrocarpa and Larch to name a few.

As at times some of these lines became harder to obtain or weeks delayed. We then purchased a portable sawmill giving us better supply and options to serve our customer base better.

In more recent years the popularity of natural timber in building has grown and our focus has grown to include specialised imported timbers like Western Red Cedar, American Oak, Red Oak, Ash, Siberian Larch, Kwila, Purple Heart Decking which we directly import ourselves.

We had the opportunity to purchase the furniture factory next door. This led us into the processing of finishing of our timber, offering our customer base better service and turn around of orders. This has continued over the years to now 85% of orders being machined into a finished product i.e. weatherboards, decking, window reveals, flooring, fencing, laminated stair treads and tops, also many hard to find mouldings.

Halswell Timber remains a family-owned business still today.
