Jacks have been supplying machinery to Kiwis working with wood for over 75 years - from New Zealand's ubiquitous home workshops to the largest timber or panel processing plants. With showrooms in Auckland and Christchurch, and technicians around the country, Jacks continue to offer sales and services for many of the world's leading manufacturers, including Homag & Weinmann, Weinig, and Felder machinery Groups.
As well as the Homag edgebanders in use around NZ, the Homag Group includes Weinmann - the pre-fabrication, house-building and modular construction specialists.
The Weinig Group is far and away the world's leading innovator and supplier of machinery for processing solid and engineered wood products - from planers, cross cut saws and finger jointing machines to 5 axis CNC machining centres.
In addition, Jacks represent a variety of specialist manufacturers including Woodtec Fankhauser (vacuum presses) and Minda (mechanical presses) offering processing technology from the forest to the construction site. Jacks have particular expertise on the manufacture of CLT and other structural elements suitable for off-site construction.
Jacks have been involved in every significant timber prefabrication project in New Zealand, and look forward to helping Kiwi prefabricators maximise the efficiency and environmental benefits timber prefabrication provides.
