About saveboard

saveBOARD is focused on building a circular economy by turning composite packaging waste back into products that re-enter the local supply chain eliminating future waste.

We have two plants; one in Warragamba, NSW, Australia and one in Hamilton New Zealand. We now manufacture healthy, affordable, high performance building materials from our Hamilton & Warragamba factories that make a circular economy an everyday reality.

We upcycle packaging waste in Australasia through the implementation of proven, scalable technologies that turn locally collected waste into locally distributed, recyclable building products.
