p8At Gumpro, we pride ourselves in supplying the highest quality SABS treated building, construction and fencing poles to the industry.

The timber species grown and processed on our timber farm is Eucalyptus grandis (gum). Preservative treatment of poles gives protection against fungal decay, termite and wood-borer damage.



In 1974, the Pieterse family purchased a timber and game farm in the Elands Valley and established the company Gumpro (Pty) Ltd.  A decision was made to investigate the possibility of adding value to the timber harvested on the farm to ensure the continued viability of the timber farm and private nature reserve.

Timber preservation appeared to be the best option and, in 1979, a Tanalith (CCA) plant was commissioned and was followed 6 years later by an open-tank Creosote plant. During the past 30 years in the pole preservation industry, Gumpro has built up a reputation for a superior quality product and outstanding service. Gumpro is also a founder member of the South African Wood Preservers Association (SAWPA).
