Innovation & Automation

Azwood's founder was driven by innovation from the start. His innovative mindset is what drove him to look for ways to repurpose natural waste into natural products, and that mindset drives innovation across the business today.

Automation is key to growing the businesses productivity and increase efficiencies to improve accuracy.

At Azwood, we’re continually looking for new ways to provide safer environments for our team and increase our use of technology.

Increased production capacity

The pelleting process

In 2023, Azwood invested in a new pellet press which increased wood pellet production capacity by over 50%.

This means we’re able to provide wood pellet fuel to more businesses throughout the South Island.

Increased productivity


Our new Brightwater Site Aurora Robot installed earlier this year has allowed us to take a large amount of the manual stacking and loading of bags off of staffs hands which is safer and it creates more efficiency and productivity for the overall pelleting process.
