Waverly mill closure will impact locals

Wednesday 6 Mar 2019

The Waverley Sawmill, which has traded since at least 1932, has been sold and the new owner has decided it is no longer viable, South Taranaki District Mayor Ross Dunlop said.

"It's been a very valuable business in our district and has employed lots of people. It's pretty sad and very tough on the staff and management."

Sixty-five jobs have been lost with the closure of a small South Taranaki town's biggest employer.
