100 years of service to the Timber Industry

For nearly 100 years the New Zealand Timber Industry has been the loyal servant of New Zealand’s sawmilling industry.

The NZTIF has been a global champion for New Zealand timber and works tirelessly to ensure the domestic sawmilling industry can continue to produce top quality and environmentally superior wood products.

The Federation continues to foster a special fraternity of committed members with a culture of cooperation, mutual encouragement and friendship.

The NZTIF is the only industry body uniquely focused solely on representing the interests of New Zealand sawmills.

Through its rich history, the Federation has played an influential role in shaping the industry and has helped establish a sound platform for the growth of the private sawmilling sector.

To this day the Federation remains the leading advocate for the New Zealand sawmilling industry in a wide range of areas of interest including market development and promotion, communications and media, standards and technical matters, quality assurance and certification, the commercial and regulatory environment and providing advice and services to members.
