Fiji’s Largest Sawmill

Tropik Wood Industries Limited (TWIL) owns and operates Fiji largest sawmill, wood chip mill for exports and is also an independent power producer exporting excess power to the national grid.

TWIL is a 100% owned subsidiary company of Fiji Pine Limited. It was founded in 1987 under the name of Forestry Development Services Limited which was later renamed to Tropik Wood Industries Limited. It is the processing arm of the vertically integrated Fiji Pine Group.

In 2011 Tropik Wood Industries Limited undertook a major transformation project in order to drive efficiencies within its operations and more importantly to become a responsible and sustainable business venture. During this transformation the Drasa factory was been upgraded to entirely a new facility with state of the art machinery.
