About Tenco
Tenco is one of New Zealand’s largest exporters of forest products. We have built to this position since 1991 when the company was set up to export lumber to growing Asian export markets.  Experience and reputation count; from small beginnings Tenco has become the largest independent exporter of New Zealand lumber and New Zealand’s 4th largest log exporter.  Tenco has a regular shipping program of their own log vessels and in combination with these and other ships currently calls  at 7 New Zealand ports (5 North Island and 2 South Island).
Tenco buys standing forests.  Tenco currently has a number of forests which they purchased at harvestable age to log over a number of years for export and domestic markets.  Tenco also regularly buys smaller tracts of forest to harvest immediately or immature forests to hold until harvest time.  Tenco is interested in broadening  the  base of owners from whom it purchases forests and stands of trees.  A deal with Tenco is a certain transaction.  The owner and Tenco will agree on a value of the tree crop and then Tenco will pay this amount to the owner either in a lump sum amount or on rate per volume unit out-turn from the forest depending on the nature of the tree crop.
Tenco knows there are a lot of farmers who have trees that are close or ready to harvest and will be asking themselves how they should proceed with the sale of their trees.  For some farmers the kind of certain transaction with money in the bank could well be appealing. Tenco is actively interested in buying harvestable forests or trees from areas including all the North Island (except the Gisborne and East Coast districts) and Nelson & Marlborough in the South Island .
If you own a forest in this area (16 years and older) and are ready to enter into this kind of agreement Tenco is interested to develop something with you.

 NZ Wood Awards 2010

The NZ Wood Timber Design Awards is a highly acclaimed, annual awards event showcasing the innovative and aesthetic use of timber by New Zealand architects and engineers. The entrants constantly provide projects of a very high standard, making the evening an interesting and worthwhile event for everyone with an interest in timber and design.

This year, the awards will be hosted by Fair Go's Kevin Milne, and we are proud to welcome the team from Victoria University to present their Eco-House Project, due for construction in Washington in 2011.

The evening will begin at 5.30pm with drinks and canapes, and provides the opportunity for attendees to view all the 2010 entries, discuss the entries with companies involved, and network with other industry-related contacts. Coffee and dessert will follow the formal proceedings at approximately 8.30pm, and is all inclusive of the ticket cost.
