Established in 1922, Jenkin has a long history of providing reliable timber products nationwide. As of 2016, Jenkin was acquired by Claymark who are dedicated to providing the same high quality product and dependability expected from the A-lign brand.
In fact, as NZ’s largest manufacturer and exporter of premium pine products, Claymark intends to invest in further development of the A-lign range. “What is great with Claymark coming on board is it gives us the ability to have more investment and development, along with continuity of what has already been done as a trusted product,” explains Bruce Barclay, Sales and Marketing Manager, Claymark.
Claymark now proudly supplies the Jenkin timber range nationwide. Best known is the A-lign precision-cut radiata pine weatherboard system, a complete system that simplifies the design process for architects, while offering ease of use and speed of installation for builders. The full Jenkin timber range also includes A-lign fencing, A-lign balustrades and Tru-Pine Pergolas, as well as the recently launched A-lign Vertical Weatherboard — a vertical weatherboard cladding system that provides a different architectural look from traditional horizontal weatherboards.
Claymark also brings the benefit of owning their own sawmills, meaning they can closely control the fibre that goes into A-lign even better than before. This gives architects and designers peace of mind that they are using the highest quality radiata pine timber.
In addition to Jenkin A-lign products, Claymark offers a range of high-quality timber solutions, including laminated beams, boards and posts for structural design, exterior decking, clear boards, mouldings for interior trim and other weatherboard options.
“The acquisition of Jenkin Timber Limited has brought together a portfolio of brands and product offerings that is unparalleled,” says Barclay.
