Their new factory opened in January 2021, and is now in full production producing one home at Mt Cardrona Station per week.

Centrally located in Cromwell, Otago, Hector Egger specialises in manufacturing engineered timber into high-tech prefabricated structures to be assembled on-site, and because of their position in the industry and locality to the development they became an obvious partner in developing Mt Cardrona Station residences.

“Houses constructed in timber not only offer a unique feel-good climate, they are also unbeatable in terms of sustainability and energy efficiency. We use the latest in woodworking technology to realise our clients dreams of energy efficient, well designed and long lasting homes. Wood is the material of the hour for modern housing.” - Stephan Mausli, Hector Eggor NZ

The manufacturing process starts with sustainably sourced wood that is milled into thin layers. These layers are then glued together, with the grain of each layer running perpendicular to the one before it. This creates a strong and stable material that resist warping, shrinking, and cracking.

Hector Egger then takes this engineered timber and uses state-of-the-art manufacturing processes to efficiently turn these engineered timber supplies into pre-cut frames and panels to the exact specification of Leuschke Groups designs.

Once the timber is manufactured in Cromwell, it is transported to the Mt Cardrona Station construction site and assembled into walls and structures.

Hector Egger’s expertise in manufacturing engineered timber is helping us to create sustainable, cost-effective, design-led residences that will stand the test of time. We look forward to seeing the finished product and to continue working with this innovative company on future projects.
