Pan Pac incorporates an extremely high level of technology in the production and processing of all our products.

In the sawmill, we use optimisation scanning as well as size and length control.

In the kilns, the latest available technology is used for control of the drying and reconditioning process.

In the drymill, automated grade scanning is undertaken to produce a consistent grade and quality.


Shipping is available to most markets directly through the Port of Napier, located 20 kms from the Hawke's Bay plant, and through Port Chalmers in Dunedin from the Milburn plant.

Shipping for green product can be by breakbulk or containerised and all kiln dried product is exported by container.
