About Us

In 2012, Jason and Alice Douglas purchased Halswell Timber Nelson Ltd from Alice’s parents, Peter & Barbara Stuart.

From supplying specialised timbers (native, exotic and imported); Jason then set up a full machine shop enabling all timbers to be produced into products like weatherboard, flooring, decking, skirting, mouldings and many more onsite.

2015 saw the purchase of a sawmill in Appleby, which became Halswell Sawmilling Ltd. In 2016, a laminating plant was next and Halswell Timber Nelson relocated out to the Richmond site and amalgamated its operations and re-branded as HTL Group.

Today HTL Group produces timber products from log-form right through to coated-finished-products from a local as down the road to across the pacific.
