SERVICING INDUSTRY FOR OVER
Indac NZ was established in 1980 and is based in Blenheim, Marlborough at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. We are a leading manufacturer of durable industrial grade plastic products.
Multi-platform moulding systems and a unique skill set enable us to see projects from many different viewpoints, allowing development of a well thought out working solution.
We have an innovative design and construction team all working in their specialised areas to bring together many leading products and firsts in their field - from the first smooth shell mussel float and live mussel display units to the first compact and portable rotational moulding machines.
We have developed insulated fish bins for the New Zealand market and many specialised pieces of equipment for the salmon farming industry. We have over the years also become a leading designer and supplier of footpath signage products. The majority of our designs and developments are direct requests from industry and individuals to solve particular problems.
We love the challenge of designing and constructing cutting-edge products for scientific institutions and companies.
OUR DESIGN TEAM
The design team at Indac draws experience from a wide range of industries and learning areas. Primary on our work ethic is the pursuit of excellence and innovation in the use of plastics in all areas of industry.
Indac NZ really does express the "kiwi" ingenuity and "can-do" attitude that defines our small but significant industry!
Chairman of the board and head of the design team is Michael Hitchins. With a passion for problem solving and the ability to think up the previously unthinkable, he is the leader of the band and the company’s founding father.
Mike has an amazing ability to see things in three dimensions and in working fashion from just a 2D drawing. He also has a passion for what we like to call "bucket chemistry" - this keeps him occupied and brings about the most unexpected developments.
Daniel Silver Moonlight, like his name will often shoot for the stars, occasionally leaving orbit completely. With previous work in a nuclear power plant, as well as a background in harp making and electronics, he has a very keen physics brain.
Daniel can refine processes, find data and gets results. He is also fluent in the language of our CNC machine, which has been known to talk complete gibberish at times.
Marcus is an import to our shores that we are lucky to have. He can take a two dimensional rough pen sketch and turn it into a three dimensional reality.
A skilled draftsman, Marcus irons out all the finer design details, but his wife irons his shirts.
Eric has worked in the aeronautic industry, is a most skilled toolmaker, with an unsurpassed ability to make the most delicate and complex of moulds and they work.
His skill enables the injection moulding production of some of New Zealand's most clever products, such as our world famous Spinwelds.
Lindsay has the eye of a photographic artist and combined with his crafting ability and well developed skills, allows him to take the drawings from Marcus and turn them into working moulds. Then carefully folded, cut and welded, to give our rotationally moulded products an almost seamless look.
