ATS Timber worked in with our local Approved Reseller to be the key supplier of specialised H6 treated Weka SG8 timber for the new wharf in Maungaturoto, Northland. A range of mainly 50mm sizes of H6 was used in the construction and to help fund it the locals came up with an innovative idea where you sponsored a deck plank on the wharf.
As part of the rural communities 150th celebrations a project was initiated called ‘Beautify Maungaturoto. This involved a lot of projects and one of the key stones of this was the construction of a new wharf.
The first European settlers to Maungaturoto came from England, arriving in Auckland in 1863 and coming north via boat to Mangawhai, then via bullock cart to as far as Kaiwaka.
The construction of the wharf paved the way for a re-enactment of this historic landing as one of the main events in the sesquicentennial celebrations.
