For over half a century International Panel and Lumber (West Coast) Ltd has been operating on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

Following ownership changes in its formative years it became a 100% New Zealand owned private company in 1991. The IPL mill is situated in Gladstone, 10 km south of Greymouth and employs around 100 staff making it one of the larger employers in the West Coast region.
Originally IPL produced plywood made from indigenous species of lumber sourced from the surrounding West Coast region. However since the Government imposed cessation of indigenous logging in the 1980’s plywood production shifted to the use of plantation grown Pinus Radiata sourced from the upper South Island of New Zealand.

IPL concentrates on supplying the New Zealand market through a network of Builders’ Merchants although some product is exported to Australia and the Pacific Islands. Whilst the majority of production is focused on the general construction industry there is an increasing emphasis on high grade finishing plywood.
This is being specified by interior designers and architects for a range of applications including shop fitouts, reception areas, public building and university interiors, design features, where the high quality of IPL products is widely recognised.
