Welcome to Herman Pacific – NZ’s Leading Manufacturer and supplier of specialty timber products
Our doors opened in 1974 with a simple promise, ‘quality first and second to none’. This core value remains as important to our business today, as it was in our humble beginnings. Since inception we have stayed privately and 100% New Zealand owned, contributing to the economy in a market leadership capacity, whilst keeping our successes local.
From our Founders, to our Directors and the entire dedicated team, our success-story is all about tried and true, cutting-edge solutions for the building industry. Originally a modest footprint in Silverdale, this site now spans across nine acres, with further sales and warehousing facilities in both Wellington and Christchurch. Whilst our flagship timber is Western Red Cedar, our breadth of species is extensive, with over 15 different hardwood and softwood options, matched with a range of solutions from the ground up: flooring, decking, weatherboard, cladding, mouldings and panelling.
We take pride in shaping the building landscape with products that stand the test of time and look stunning in their occupation. Whilst our work can be seen across NZ’s most prestigious homes and commercial spaces, our approach will always remain humble, focused only on our next innovation. Over the decades we have developed hundreds of new products, matching and exceeding the needs of our merchant resellers, homeowners, builders and architects. A particular highpoint is our associated company, Machinecoat (NZ) Ltd, established in 1996 to meet the market demand for a factory-based coating system for timber cladding, fascia, decking and panelling. With Machinecoat, our products are factory coated, dried, packed and delivered to building sites in a ‘ready to go’ status. Removing the laborious task of manually coating timber, onsite, has been an industry game-changer, particularly from a timesaving and cost-efficiency perspective. Our colour choices continue to expand, complimenting the latest designer trends. Ask our team about Wood-X, a company set up to meet our customers’ need for high quality, exterior wood oil. For your peace of mind, a dedicated technical team sits behind the development of Wood-X oils - leading paint manufacturer, Resene, are just as particular about quality, as we are.
Behind all of our new ideas, methods and technologies is a robust testing phase. We have utmost confidence that any new ranges hitting the market place will allow architects, builders and home owners to design with freedom and flair, secure in the knowledge that everything will work in its application, is backed with certified accreditations and will obtain council approvals. Our long-serving Directors all work within the business and are experts within their respective fields, providing you with a pool of knowledge you can rely on.
From our place to yours – we welcome an opportunity to show you why Herman Pacific has topped the field in product design, manufacturing and production technologies. We welcome your enquiry and look forward to seeing you in the showroom soon!
