ABOUT US

Family-owned for three generations, Hatuma Lime Company Ltd is spread over three quarry sites on the East Coast and one satellite depot in Marton.

The company was first established in 1932 and quickly grew to be one of the biggest suppliers of agricultural lime in the country. Since 1962 the Hatuma name has pioneered and become synonymous with farm sustainability, driven by the successful use of Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate®, and more recently FuturepHos®, on thousands of farms throughout the country.

We are dedicated to ensuring Hatuma meets the diverse needs of the modern farmer, as the industry moves to tell a new story of sustainability and efficiency to the global market.

Hatuma Lime Company

520 Maharakeke Rd, Waipukurau

First established in 1932 by a group of Wellington market gardeners looking for a high grade of limestone they could rail to their gates. It was here in 1962 that Joe Topp made his first tonnes of Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® commercially available. His son, Clifford, started working at Hatuma in 1964 and took the product through the next thirty years, seeing the second millionth tonne sold. FuturepHos® is now manufactured at this site and transported throughout the North Island.

Waipawa Site

Tikokino Rd, Waipawa

Hatuma Lime Company established this quarry in 1957. It started manufacturing Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® from the 1970s to help supply the local market. Today product from this site is transported far and wide throughout the North Island.

Mauriceville Site

1331 Opaki Kaiparoro Rd, Mauriceville

Established in 1916, Mauriceville is the oldest lime company in the Wairarapa. Joe Topp had successfully managed the site between 1942 and 1952, so gladly took the opportunity to amalgamate it when it was offered by its Directors to Hatuma Lime Company in 1977. This site has since spent its time manufacturing and supplying Wairarapa, Wellington, Tararua and the West Coast of the North Island with lime and Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate®
