50 Years & Growing: The History of Pan Pac Vol II

Friday 3 May 2024

An icon in New Zealand's Hawke’s Bay region for half a century, Pan Pac Forest Products has released '50 Years & Growing: The History of Pan Pac, Vol. II', which details the company's last 30 years. It’s been many years in the making and was put on hold during last year's cyclone.

50 Years & Growing charts the company’s growth since 1993, along with the personalities, challenges and innovative solutions along the way.

"It is with a great sense of pride that I present this introduction to the next instalment of the Pan Pac story," said Pan Pac's managing director, Tony Clifford. "I joined Pan Pac in March 1992, so I was a new starter when we celebrated the first 20 years of Pan Pac in 1993. Change is in the eye of the beholder and in my eyes, I have observed significant change in these last 30 years."

Today the lumber business produces kiln dried, clear and sawlog grades of dimensional lumber for customers across the Pacific and Europe. The pulp mill converted from TMP to BCTMP in 2012 and now supplies packaging grade pulps to China, India and other countries.

Pan Pac is a major employer in Hawke’s Bay and a significant contributor to the regional economy.
