KEA has been around since 1985. It was set up at a time when Tasman Pulp and Paper Co. was drastically reducing its work force. As part of Tasman’s commitment to the Kawerau community, it encouraged the establishment of a new organisation with a goal to support and to improve the economic well-being of Kawerau.
