Pipe maker expands offerings

PPI Corporation’s New Zealand business has recently upgraded its extrusion lines with the latest German technology, increasing their pipe manufacturing capabilities to 450 mm. PPI New Zealand has been manufacturing small bore pipe for the last 15 years, and up to 160 mm for the last five years. Following on from the success of the PPI Australia large bore pipe business, PPI New Zealand is well equipped for the market demand.

A number of companies in New Zealand produce PE pipe within the parameters of the Australian Standards, but PPI New Zealand’s PE pipe is well respected by both installers and fabricators for material quality, dimensional accuracy and lack of ovality – all essential characteristics of high quality pipe.

The PE100 metric pipe offered by PPI New Zealand is manufactured to AS/NZS4130 and is readily accepted by all authorities. The company has also been awarded ISO9001 certification for all production and warehouse sites across Australia and New Zealand, as well as Watermark certification to the Australian Standard AS/NZS4130.

PPI New Zealand capabilities include:

  • PE100 pressure pipe and fittings to 450 mm
  • PE100 conduit and fittings – electrical and communications
  • Hi-vis sewer pipe
  • Solabloc pipe

The company’s NZ manufacturing plant is located in Rangiora on the South Island and operates three shifts 24 hours, seven days a week.
