Compac Panels products are manufactured in Dargaville using wood sourced from FSC-certified, sustainably harvested, New Zealand radiata pine forests. The fast-growing pine produces wood with long, strong fibres which, when processed, gives excellent screw-holding stability. This avoids warping and extends the useful life of your final products.

NZ-made MDF meets Environmental Choice standards for formaldehyde emission levels of E0 <= 0.5mg/L, which makes it safe to work with.

Panels are laminated without the use of any toxic or harsh chemicals. Durable, eco-friendly, European wood-product laminate papers are used rather than plastics and no rainforest products are used in any phase of our manufacturing. We guarantee it.

Our state-of-the-art, energy-efficient factory runs 100% on electricity generated from New Zealand’s mostly (82%) renewable energy grid.

We re-use and recycle. All cardboard is recycled locally, and our wood waste is composted.

It’s not a bad start. But we know we can still do better. Our goal is to be not only the leading laminate manufacturer in New Zealand but also the most sustainable. We’ll keep you updated on our progress!
