NEW PLANT AND DC FOR WINSTONE WALLBOARDS

By NZHJ June 22, 2018 Building Materials

Plans are well underway for a new Drury, South Auckland, wallboard plant and distribution centre.

Also part of yesterday's announcements at the Fletcher Building strategy briefing was news of plans for a greenfield factory for Winstone Wallboards.

Larger and more automated than the company's existing plants, the new $262 million wallboard factory and distribution centre will probably be in Drury, South Auckland.

It will employ up to 200 people, at a stroke doubling the number of employees across Winstone Wallboards' Auckland manufacturing and four distribution sites.

In terms of the timeline, negotiations on the land acquisition are still in progress but the anticipated completion of the new facility is in 2021/2022.
