About us

FTEK is a family owned business founded over 10 years ago by Mark and James Currie. Initially FTEK began life as a general design & engineering company (Prior to going into business Mark had 15 years trade experience as a qualified mechanical engineer, and James a proven background in product design and CAD development). The defining moment for where FTEK is now began during a contract to repair a fleet of glasshouse scissor lifts. Through observations and discussions with end users, growers and maintenance personnel, we could see a huge opportunity to introduce an innovative solution to improve end user experiences and safety, increase productivity, and simplify maintenance and servicing for this line of equipment.

The introduction of FTEK’s flagship product the TEK-LIFT, has catapulted FTEK to be the leading supplier of specialised glasshouse equipment and solutions in New Zealand. With a growing team of skilled & dedicated people, we are well positioned to be the preferred equipment provider in this industry, and proudly support a growing customer base in Australasia, with aspirations to be a global provider of leading product solutions.

FTEK is situated in Pukekohe south of Auckland City. This location is the heart of New Zealand’s indoor and outdoor vegetable growing industry, which has given FTEK the ability to work with some of New Zealand’s leading cropping companies to develop our equipment.
