Wood Processors Association of New Zealand (WPA)
The Wood Processors Association of New Zealand (WPA) represents companies responsible for the primary processing of between 75 to 80 percent of New Zealand's wood. With annual export earnings of $3.2 billion and domestic sales of $1.5 billion, the forestry and wood processing industry is New Zealand's third largest export earner.
Members of WPA include those involved in the manufacture of pulp and paper, engineered wood products, sawn lumber and the fabrication of frames and trusses.
WPA is an advocacy body acting on behalf of its members, specifically ensuring the processing arm of New Zealand's forest industry has both a profile and a collective voice in political and public arenas. WPA serves its members by representing their collective interests and allowing a single voice for a significant part of New Zealand's export earnings.
