WE ARE DESIGNED TO CO-EXIST
We believe that we have an obligation to give more to the future. Because the future is silent, it is our responsibility to be their voice. This belief is birthed in the values of Whakapapa (legacy), Kaitiakitanga (stewardship) and He Tangata (our people), which have been part of our culture for generations.
For us, this means helping young people achieve their dreams, contributing to our communities and supplying sustainably harvested product. It also means continually working to find solutions for the co-existence of humans and the environment.
Renewable Geothermal Energy
Our electricity on-site is supplied by our local geothermal power stations and our kilns are directly powered by a closed loop geothermal system. This system sources its energy from the earth, uses it, then gives it back for the next generation.

Passion for community
As well as the sustainability of our environment, we’re really passionate about our communities and supporting the sustainable growth of our region. We believe we have a role to play in contributing to local initiatives and helping our young people achieve their dreams.
