Following the huge 7.8 earthquake that shook the South Island on Sunday 13th November, the team here at Tarpaulin Makers made a decision to stop production and we launched a Foodbank appeal to collect as much food and water to support our fellow New Zealanders. It was a busy week but we had an amazing response and managed to collect 19 pallets of goods, which TR Group transported to the Salvation Army in Christchurch on Sunday 20th November.
 
From Christchurch Sollys Transport picked up the 19 pallets and delivered them to Andrea's Angels based at Rangiora airstrip yesterday, where the goods have started to been distributed to all the areas that are completely cut off.

We want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone involved from our customers and suppliers like Attwoods who donated all the boxes and 2 pallets of toilet roll, to all the people and schools that have donated goods and really supported what we started. It is heart warming to see our community pull together to provide for others when we they need it most.

Our team was tasked with manufacturing a sixty five metre concrete curing blanket for HEB PRECAST Mt Maunganui for this concrete casting bed. The concrete curing blanket rolls on and off this large moveable frame. With a special thermal insulation layer between two layers of Tarpaulin Makers fabric we have created a blanket which is containing enough heat for the concrete underneath to cure even in the coldest month of July we have seen in a long time.
