The company was originally established in the small Southland country settlement of Niagara and has been wholly owned by the Richardson family since 1954. It graduated from three sawmills to its present site at Kennington on the outskirts of Invercargill.  

Providing quality timber is our lifeblood and the staff at Niagara have expertise, experience and a belief that our products, like the tall forest, will stand the test of time.

Niagara

With a Sawmill processing 110,000m3  of timber per annum, continuous kilns, and state of the art System TM Timber processing system the Kennington Site is the engine room of the Niagara timber processing business.

The newly installed System TM solution includes a large optimizing cut line and both vertical and horizontal finger-jointing solutions.

An automated infeed system feeds a planer that dresses the timber on all 4 sides. It is subsequently transported to Microtec multi sensor Xray scanner.  The scanner detects any timber defections, and sends this information to the three Opti-Kap cross cut saws.

 

After being processed by the cross cut saws the timber shook’s are either further processed through a re rip station, or transported to a series of walking floor bins which ultimately feed a horizontal Opti-Joint H200 and a vertical Opti-Joint V7 jointer. Each finger jointing system includes an automated infeed, jointing, and stacking solution.
