DIECASTING (N.Z.) LIMITED
Diecasting (N.Z.) Limited was formed in 1969 when the owners recognised an opportunity to service the CKD car industry, which at the time required a greater local content. By 1980, the company was well established as specialists in zinc diecasting and the customer base had grown considerably to include many household names, ie. Sunbeam, Ultimate Echo, AWA. General Motors, Ford Motor Co., Fisher & Paykel, Kambrook, Zip and Hoover.
In 1992 a decision was made to begin a replacement program for their ageing diecasting machines. All machines have now been renewed and have proven to be reliable and efficient, allowing economic production costs. Our well maintained machines range from 50 tonne to 300 tonne. Also available on site is a polishing shop offering polishing, vibrating, linishing services.
