Proper pre-drying is crucial to remove excess moisture from timber before further processing. Our pre-drying service helps stabilise the moisture content, preventing issues such as warping, shrinkage, or decay. It sets the foundation for successful kiln drying and enhances the overall quality of your timber.


Our advanced kiln-drying process utilises precise temperature and humidity control to achieve optimal moisture levels in the timber. This promotes dimensional stability, enhances strength, and reduces the risk of fungal growth. Our expertise in kiln drying ensures the highest quality output for your timber products.

Re Drying

Re-Drying Treated Timber

Treated timber often requires re-drying to restore the appropriate moisture content for specific applications. Our re-drying service carefully controls the drying process to achieve the desired moisture levels while maintaining the integrity of the treatment. This ensures that the timber is ready for use in a wide range of manufacturing applications.

We take great pride in our ability to customise our drying services to meet the unique requirements of New Zealand’s top manufacturers. Whether you need specific moisture content levels, specialised treatment, or precise drying schedules, our experienced team is dedicated to delivering outstanding results.
