Unique Timber Business - Whanganui Based, National Reach

MacBlack Timber Limited - High-value timber merchant

  • Specialist sawmiller and merchants of NZ-produced exotic timber
  • Value-added timber processing
  • Large centrally located retail yard (also available for purchase): 3245 sqm Freehold Title, Industrial Zone A 7/A
  • Experienced & loyal workforce, semi-managed business
  • Aligned with MPI Forestry and Wood Processing Industry Transformation Plan

MacBlack Timber sources logs and then mills them in-house to maximise value, offering a range of species and grades of timber to suit different customer requirements. The business adds further value by processing suitable boards into cladding, decking, panelling or flooring profiles.

MacBlack specialises in locally grown alternatives to radiata pine and imported hardwood timbers. The retail yard is centrally located in Whanganui and is very well-appointed. This includes a 25m-long shelter with drive-through access to racked timber for immediate purchase, further timber storage, a well-furnished workshop, and machine sheds. An onsite joinery workshop manufactures high-end solid timber products: doors, bench tops, tables, and made-to-order furniture. A second leased yard provides space for year-round milling, drying, and storage.

The founder is seeking to retire and is committed to seeing the business thrive under new ownership. There is a strong foundation for growth in place with the potential to expand merchant sales and add complementary DIY and trade product lines. This business may suit an existing forestry-aligned business, a timber merchant looking to expand, or a hands-on entrepreneur.
