Westimber has been in the Timber Industry for over 60 years. Initially formed by 2 families, Donaldsons and Gibsons, the business was purchased by 2 members of the next generation in October 2014.
Our sawmill based at Ngahere on the West Coast, manufactures all of the timber for our various products and supplies stock to our Christchurch yard for sales direct to the public.
Our Premium Appearance Grades are: Clears 1 which is totally knot-free with no defects. Clears 2 will have one face and edges of Clears 1 with possibly knots on the other face.
Our Core Product is Stress-Tested Verified Structural Framing timber known as SG8. We are a Licensed Producer under the Verified Timber quality assurance programme. This means we are certified to produce SG6 & SG8 grades.
Our popular Premium Decking has either a grooved grip-tread profile with a Bandsawn face, or Smooth-face on both sides. Or we can custom-machine your own profile/size to suit. We also have Kwila Decking available.
