Innovation and Value
In January 1996, when LumberBank NZ Ltd opened, our primary business was the sourcing and supply of locally grown Radiata Pine and imported LVL from Forward Wood Products in Australia to the building and manufacturing industries. Our focus on customer service and efficient delivery meant rapid growth and we soon expanded our product range to become one of New Zealand’s leading importers and distributors of exotic timber and timber products.
Moving into the 2000s, we added New Zealand Engineered Wood Products to our product range. Once again, our attention to detail and responding to the needs of our customers saw us grow to become one of New Zealand’s premier suppliers of Engineered Wood Products.
In 2008, we became proud distributers of the Nelson Pine Industries range of products and, in 2016, we entered into an arrangement with Christchurch-based company Lumberworx to distribute Lumberworx I Beam floor and roof systems throughout in the North Island.
Since then, LumberBank has purchased Lumberworx and apply the same customer-focused service to our distribution of the renowned I Beam.
The LumberBank Difference
Wood is used extensively in building because it’s versatile, reliable, trustworthy, durable and cost-effective – there’s an integrity about timber that other materials just can’t match.
At LumberBank, we’ve been around timber for so long that we’ve adopted many of the same traits – reliable, trustworthy, and resilient, and we stock a great range of good value timber products.
Our success is based on our belief that we are more than simply timber stockists; we’re passionate about supplying the New Zealand woodworking sector with the best product on the market while bringing an integrity and a responsibility to our client relationships that others just can’t match.
