Azwood Energy, Celebrating 40 Years of Operation
We believe in being resourceful and making the most of what we have been given.

This simple statement “our why” has driven our business for 40 years. It’s the reason we clean-up forestry sites to reduce erosion and use the residue to replace coal in huge boiler systems. And the reason we produce wood chip from logs to help reduce emissions in our communities.

Being resourceful and making the most of what we have been given is the reason we pay for premium virgin sawdust to process and press into pellets, when the saw dust used to go to landfill.

Being resourceful is woven into the very core of this family-grown, 100% New Zealand-owned business. Last year, Azwood Energy handled more than 1.2 million cubic meters of recycled wood. Through this sustainable circular economy, we were able to grow our operations and create employment opportunities for Kiwis across New Zealand.

This year also marks 10 years of wood pellet production for Azwood Energy. Using Nelson’s high-density virgin pine, from our nutrient-rich clay-based soil – we really enjoy the thought of warming New Zealand homes.

Azwood Energy would like to thank all our industry partners, clients and customers for 40 years of relationship building and trust. You are all a meaningful part of our low-emission, sustainable our circular economy and help us to live “our why”.

Thanks for all your support.

Warm Regards,

The Team at Azwood Energy
