About Us


UCL SAWMILLING was previously known as MPP, which was an acronym for MIDLANDS PINE PRODUCTS (PTY) LTD. MPP was bought out by UCL at the end of March 2015.

We are part of UCL COMPANY (PTY) LTD which is a diverse agricultural company based in Dalton in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. Here is the link to the UCL website www.uclweb.co.za

Our sawmill is based in Glenside in the picturesque KZN midlands in South Africa. The saw mill was originally known as Kὒsel sawmills and has been in operation since 1935. The sawmill has a long tradition of supplying quality sawn board cut from twenty eight year old SA pine trees. The pine trees are grown on our own farms as well as on the farms of surrounding timber farms the owners of which are mostly shareholders in UCL. It is as a result of the very strong link between the company and its growers that the raw material supplied to the mill is of such a high quality.

Our lumber is FSC®-C001771, SABS and SATAS certified.
