The Promax Story

Promax is New Zealand’s premier manufacturer of superior polyethylene water storage and transport solutions. Whatever the sector, whatever your project, there’s a Promax Liquid Management solution made for the job.

Promax was established in 1992 when Tim Strachan opened his first factory in a kiwifruit packing shed in Kerikeri.  Promax is proud to be a family focused business. Since Tim retired in 2016 the transition of management from one generation to another has seen his sons Walter and Hamish take the reins. Managing Director, Walter Strachan has over 15 years’ experience in the Rotational Moulding business and his brother North Island Factory Manager, Hamish Strachan, has been involved in the company from its conception and is still a driving force in our direction and innovation.

Equally comfortable on the farm and in the boardroom, the Strachan brothers have seen Promax go from strength to strength. In 2007 Promax opened an impressive site in Rangiora in the South Island and in 2010 the current Kerikeri site in the Far North was commissioned. Today’s state of the art manufacturing facilities are a far cry from our humble beginnings in that kiwifruit packing shed. Our world leading manufacturing plants boast in-house resin compounding and massive kilns that produce thousands of tanks every year, including the ultra-strong corrugated tanks that Promax are renowned for.

Our team includes qualified engineers who use specialist software to create exceptional products, experienced sales representatives who work closely with their clients to provide customised solutions, and an exceptional customer service team who are tireless in support of our customers. With North Island and South Island sites and a fleet of delivery trucks we are proud to provide our exceptional products and customer service nationwide.

Promax works closely with the Rural, Build, Civil and Industrial markets, combining innovative design and manufacturing excellence to bring each sector a comprehensive range of products. Our team continues to develop new solutions that keep pace with a dynamic and ever-changing marketplace.
