The company was born in 1945 and registered under the companies act 1933 to the Pausina family for the princely sum of 5/- (five shillings [= 50 cents] for the benefit of the soley decimalised).

Shifted to Auckland in 1989 from Kaikohe in the Far North by John Pausina, the company adopted its present focus based on experience at Ingersoll-Rand, Richardson McCabe, Atlas Copco and Swift NZ contributing compressed air, hydraulics and international commodity trading expertise,

Bringing Lawrie Walker and his extensive knowlege onboard in 2003 as a partner and taking on the assets of WENZ prompted the expansion into hydraulics which was developed alongside the compressed air products.

We moved to our current site in Panmure / St Johns in 2012 after stints at Otahuhu and Mt Wellington.
