Plastic fantastic for Sistema
Sistema has imported a 1,300 and a 650 tonne injectionmoulding machine, allowing the company to create a new range of durable plastic home and office storage products exclusively for retailer The Warehouse.
The 1,300 tonne machine is one of the biggest of its type brought into the country during the last 20 years according to Sistema’s managing director Brendan Lindsay.
“This equipment is a oneof-a-kind industrial machine. I have not heard of any other company bringing in a similar machine to manufacture products like this in New Zealand.
“This investment has allowed us to diversify our product offering and produce heavy duty storage containers ranging in capacity from 14 to 90 litres.”
The firm’s $7.5 million purpose-built production factory was opened in March 2012.
