Salvaging from the past to build a better future
The construction industry is renowned for producing waste, we find innovative and sustainable ways to repurpose hundreds of tonnes of building materials by salvaging and diverting waste destined for landfill. This salvaged materials is then recycled and reused for schools, housing, churches and communities across New Zealand and the Pacific.
TROW Group has provided over 1,000 tonnes of fixtures, fittings and furniture to community organisations in New Zealand that would have otherwise gone to landfill, and also exports good quality used furniture to schools and churches in the Pacific.
From humble beginnings in a tin shed, founder Saia Latu and business partner Joe Vagana have built TROW into a deconstruction industry leader that has a focus on social outcomes. TROW undertakes projects for organisations such as Auckland Council, Panuku, Kāinga Ora, City Rail, Auckland Transport, Piratahi, and Ministry of Education.
