When a delegation of Russians came to Mahoe Farm’s dairy unit to look at the Cheese Factory they also saw the Sawmill and timber yard. The Russians liked the sawmill and ordered two. John and Ben Bergman had the background and knowledge to build the best. When you’re milling kauri in remote areas your machine must be reliable and accurate, easy to use and safe. These were all very necessary attributes in supplying sawmills to Siberia in the early 1990’s.
Our sawmills can now be found in a number of different countries all over the world including: Samoa; Indonesia; Papua New Guinea; Cameroon; Canada and the United States.
