Food Processing Machinery Cutting Edge Worldwide
Nations prosper only by making products that are in global demand. This applies to New Zealand and especially to the Hawkes Bay agricultural region which for a century and a half has been home to Napier Engineering & Contracting.
This long timeline has endured because of the company’s flexibility in adapting to changing technology and thus demand. Then in demonstrating the ability to apply this technology when and where it is needed.
In recent times the company’s resources have been deployed across the world. Wherever and whenever in fact there has been a requirement for advanced engineering technology in the sphere of food processing.
Underpinning this extended global reach has been our willingness and ability to work with other companies and indeed with other governments. Our priority over the generations remains to assemble a group of dedicated engineering specialists steeped in the experience and specialist skills that we expect from them, and our customers demand from us.
Our people are central to our implementation of food processing technology in today’s international environment, and in delivering the competitive edge that remains the imperative of Napier Engineering & Contracting.
