Background and History

Founded in 1984, Styrotech began with the design and manufacture of nationally and internationally respected windsurfing boards. Building and maintaining an edge in this market encouraged Styrotech to adopt CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology, primarily for its accuracy, quality and consistent repetitiveness. By using CAD, Styrotech became nationwide pioneers of the technology which is now the industry standard.

After adopting CAD technology, the next step was the purchase of a CNC Router and CAM software. Thus, Styrotech CNC was born, starting operations in 1994 - the combination of CAD and CAM resulting in Styrotech CNC becoming the first NZ organisation to offer end to end 3D design, shaping and machining services. Demand for CNC technology was strong, and production diversified from windsurf boards to include windsurf fins, moulds and patterns for boat building, and supply to a wide range of customers including AC Syndicates, the marine, aviation and automotive industries, foundries and many more.
