This month will see installation of production equipment begin in the new Tauranga facility. The new plant with increased output will play a critical role in supporting efforts to address the current housing shortage, and provide for warm, dry, healthy homes throughout New Zealand.

As the project hits an exciting milestone in the construction of the new state-of-the-art facility at Tauriko, we have begun the search to fill the 100 permanent roles required to operate what will be one of the largest manufacturing and distribution centres in New Zealand.

Winstone Wallboard’s head of HR, Suliana Mailangi, says that hand in hand with the construction of the company’s biggest facility will come the company’s biggest ever recruitment drive, with a wide range of roles needing to be filled.

“It’s really exciting that we’re able to create so many more employment opportunities here in Tauranga, and we’re looking forward to welcoming people from across the wider Bay of Plenty region into our Winstone Wallboards whanau.”

“We operate a unique shift structure for our production roles that supports our staff to balance their work with other interests or responsibilities, and as part of the wider Fletcher Building group of companies offer a safety-first culture, competitive pay and a broad range of career progression opportunities.”

“We’re particularly excited about how this might support our commitment to attract a diverse workforce. We think that joining us at the start of our journey here is a uniquely exciting opportunity, and one which we would encourage anyone interested to make the most of.”
