Carter Holt Harvey Mill Great News For Northland
"The news that Carter Holt Harvey will be locating a laminated veneer timber mill near Whangarei is great news for Northland, and Whangarei in particular, said Dr Muriel Newman Whangarei MP for ACT New Zealand.
"This project will give a great boost to the economy. Importantly for Northland this project is a major job creator with 220 construction jobs now and 110 full-time jobs when it is in full production."
"It's great to see our region attracting such a major project.
"It is especially pleasing to know that we will be adding value to wood products, rather than exporting the raw material. Added-value exporting holds great future opportunities for New Zealand," said Muriel Newman.
