Woodmetrics sale announcedThe owners of Woodmetrics Ltd confirmed to Friday Offcuts that they are selling the company to Gerry Mortimer. Gerry will operate the Woodmetrics business alongside his Mortimer Forestry business which offers forest management and ETS services. Woodmetrics was started in 2001 by CHH to offer a unique stumpage selling service to private forest owners. In 2003 the current owners; Philip Elworthy, Peter Harington, and Ian Bell bought the company from CHH in a management buyout. Since then they have managed over 220 stumpage sales in the North Island of New Zealand.
The current owners said they're delighted to be able to sell the company to someone who is going to continue to operate at the high level of integrity which has been the hallmark of the Woodmetrics service. Gerry Mortimer says that he is grateful for the opportunity to purchase the company with an established position in the market and a set of values which matches his own. He will continue with the same business approach model as the previous owners, providing independent woodsale management advice to forest owners.
