History

Dysart Timbers Ltd was established in 1976 by Mr Dysart.  Mr Barry Sapwell bought into the company in 1984.  Following this in 1985 Dysart Manufacturing started up to compliment the building supplies store with premade frames and trusses.  Dysarts has been operating off the same premises since 1984.

Dysart Timbers joined the ITM Group in 2006, in a bid to bring customers better pricing and a wider “whole of house” product selection, and is now known as Dysart ITM.

In 2013 the company was passed on to Barry’s two children; David Sapwell and Carly Saunders, and son in law Adrian Saunders who now heads the company.  We are proud to be a family owned New Zealand company supporting the New Zealand building trade.
