Wairarapa News : February 8th 2012
22 WAIRARAPA NEWS, FEBRUARY 8, 2012 4357321AA Dawson & Havard Ltd is one of the most well-respected logging companies in the North Island and they have been one of JNL's most loyal contractors right from the beginning. Owner Mike Havard says they have really appreciated the relationship they have built with JNL over the years. "From my point of view they're a bloody good company to work for and we pride ourselves in our loyalty to them and they have shown that loyalty back to us, so it's a two-way street," he says. Havard Logging was the first logging contractor in Ngaumu forest in 1981 long before the forest estate was sold to JNL and they've the principal contractor supplying logs to the mill ever since. ""Nobody else has been there foraslongaswehave.Wearea versatile logging company to supply JNL's every need. Our number one loyalty is to JNL- if they need wood, we produce it," he says. With 74 employees Havard Logging is one of the big boys in the logging business and they have the size and flexibility to provide professional and competitive logging services as and when they are required. Havard Logging has been operating since 1969 and in addition to the four crews working in Wairarapa; they have two crews operatingin theCoromandel and two more harvesting logs in Northland. Due to the cyclical nature of the logging industry, the demand for harvesting logs fluctuates which can pose challenges for contractors. Havard Logging appreciates the stability that companies such as JNL can bring to the industry by continuing to harvest through the cycle which shields contractors from some of the volatility of the market. This means Havard Logging can retain valuable workers when times are tough so they have the production capacity when the market requires more wood. As a significant employer and valuable business in the region Dawson & Havard Ltd does not have a large profile in Wairarapa because their entire operation takes place in the forest out of the sight of the majority of the community. Mike Havard says one of their biggest challenges is finding the right kind of people to be part of the company and they are always looking for good workers.

Juken New Zealand Ltd is a New Zealand-based and registered company with a growing global outreach. Juken has been heavily involved with the New Zealand forestry and wood-processing industries for the past 20 years, manufacturing advanced and innovative wood products from selectively planted, managed and harvested radiata pine for local and export markets. In that time Juken has become an important economic and cultural contributor to the local communities within which it operates. Juken has sustainably managed and certified plantation forests in Northland, the East Coast and Wairarapa. There are four modern, efficient and environmentally-clean wood processing mills, employing nearly 900 people. Research and development is important. The firm also benefits from the technology and resources of its Japan-based parent company WoodOne Ltd, an international housing materials and componentry company. All of this means that in an age where wood is becoming increasingly recognised and re- established as a product of choice for many structural and non-structural applications, Juken can offer you high quality, fit-for-purpose products to meet consumer needs. Products JNL makes a wide range of engineered wood (LVL ( laminated veneer lumber), plywood, panels) and solid wood products -- for structural and non-structural purposes, for external or internal uses, and for appearance or non-appearance finishes. All of it is from trees that they plant, care for, and harvest on a sustainable basis to ensure the best possible products are produced. Juken is therefore ''hands on'' all the way through from the tree seed to the finished product and in a way that is sensitive to the social needs and eco systems within which we live, work and play. Forests Juken forests are certified and managed according to internationally- recognised environmental standards -- FSC and ISO. They are immaculate. They provide the very best of raw materials to their wood processing mills which are also managed according to international standards, including Forest Stewardship Council, International Organization for Standard- ization and Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia. Through innovative processes and skilled staff Juken mills transform their harvested trees into high quality products that are reliable and durable, that perform, and that can be trusted.
