Our Company
Brief History

Original Company formed in 1975 as a Manufacturer of Lighting Products
Various Political strategies made long term production of Lighting un-economic
In 1995 we embarked on a project to develop a new type of Memorial Plaque
Why Memorial Plaques ??
The 1 off nature of this product we felt would be less likely to come under Asian pressure
Also the Funeral business had undergone huge changes and maybe memorials were next
We felt a pictorial product could say so much more about a person's life than text
By 1998 we had developed a strong & durable Ceramic material ( Permanite )
One year later we had secured access to a full colour digital printing system
In 2000 the first test memorials were made and installed in test sites in New Zealand
In that same year the product was launched and Marketing began
