About Havelock Wool
Connect with the Havelock Flock
It is our goal to produce a truly superior building product with unrivaled integrity. We seek to work with those who appreciate the value of alternative building products and a healthier, more sustainable ecosystem. We are actively building consumer awareness concerning “traditional” toxic building materials.
Andrew is founder and managing partner of Havelock Wool. He has a passion for all things New Zealand, where the company procures its wool, that is mirrored by a desire to affect positive change in the built environment. He has lived and traveled around the world and seeks to leverage those experiences in bringing a biophilic, best practice to an industry known to contribute excessive waste to our world.
Andrew is a high-energy individual who is uncomfortable without entirely too much to do. Studies include University of Chicago Booth School of Business (MBA, Finance) and Hampden- Sydney College (BA, History).

There aren’t many others who are comfortable when it comes to the intricacies of our 60 year old, repurposed, insulation production machinery. And lest we not forget he was a deputy sheriff too!
