The Kaipak team is totally stoked, humbled and mostly stunned at winning the ANZ Business of the Year Award for Excellence in Manufacturing.
After hearing that we were finalists in both the Manufacturing and the Technology and Innovation categories, we never thought we had a chance of winning. All of the other finalists are well known and long-established Mid Canterbury businesses.
Kaipak is a young business, we opened our doors in 2017 and have never looked back. Our small, tight-knit team work around the clock to keep our operation running like clockwork.
Supporting local, going global
Together, our team has over 45 years of experience in the New Zealand plastics industry. We are environmentally conscious, place a deep value on sustainability, and have immense pride in plastic manufacturing.
Our collective passion and experience allow us to undertake total in-house design and development of our plastic packaging solutions. We thrive on innovation and are constantly evolving.
“Without a team we don’t have a business. We are a small, hard-working bunch of passionate people and we appreciate every single person who keeps the Kaipak machine ticking over day after day. None of us just clock in for a paycheck, we are here to make a difference.” – Jonny Gray
Excellence in Manufacturing – Kaipak
Kaipak is a small team that are masters at making plastic jars for the food industry right here in Ashburton. They have taken a simple product and created so much value around it, by using clever technology and recycled plastic. We were wowed by their innovation.
Highly commended – NZ Sock Co
Mid Canterbury Pride
The Kaipak team is so proud to have been nominated among so many other established, innovative businesses in Mid Canterbury. Our district might be smaller than others but it is clear that our region has the ability, skills and level of excellence to lead the way.
