OneFortyOne has expanded their business from plantations and have just celebrated their first birthday since taking on the operation of the saw-mill located at Jubilee Highway Mount Gambier. General Manager Paul Hartung has been an advocate for the Pioneers Basketball Club committing as a Platinum Partner in 2018.

“We are delighted to join the Pioneers family in their inaugural season. This is the start of a new and exciting chapter for one of the most well respected sporting organisations in our region”. Paul Hartung said.

“Our values are aligned and we share a passion for championing opportunities for local women to be the best in their chosen fields, be it forestry, timber or sport”.

OneFortyOne will be recognised as our women’s naming right partner whilst Castec Rural Supplies continue on their long term relationship as Naming Right sponsors of our men’s program. “The past few months have been extremely difficult for our Basketball club, we can’t thank the local community enough. With the ongoing support of Castec Rural Supplies & now OneFortyOne we look forward to expanding our program and doing what we do best”.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
