Our process starts with listening to your specific challenges and needs. Our expert team then explores and develops a fit-for-purpose response, be it designing new products, developing new manufacturing techniques that improve efficiency, quality or reduce cost, or even boosting sustainability or reducing impact of pre-existing products through material innovation.
We treat your commercially sensitive information with respect. As our Design, R&D, Engineering and Manufacturing teams are all inhouse, it means your information will not be sent out to outside contractors and therefore keeps a tighter control on your information.
This proven process has been refined over our 50 years to ensure you have no issues further down the manufacturing line, offering protection and transparency.
We love to see our customers succeed.
We want to develop a true partnership and you will be involved with the development process all the way.
50 years of experience.
EPL has over 50 years of experience developing components for our customers.
100% New Zealand owned.
EPL is 100% New Zealand privately owned company with our head office & manufacturing facility located in Ōtautahi, Christchurch.
Inhouse Design Team.
We are proud to have our own inhouse design team located at our Christchurch Head Office
Inhouse Engineering Team.
We are also proud of our inhouse engineering team who not only make the dies for your profiles, they also make the machines that are used in the manufacture of your products.
We have 50 years experience of developing profiles, our technology is proven.
We are able to create prototypes of your design to help with evaluation.
We treat your commercially sensitive information with respect
As our Design, R&D, Engineering and Manufacturing teams are all inhouse, it means your information will not be sent out to outside contractors and therefore keeps a tighter control on your information.
We have a 50 year, proven track record of collaborating with our customers to develop solutions. We have refined the process down to ensure optimal and efficient manufacture of components.
What types of products can you manufacture?
What type of materials can you use?
We manufacture components out of a wide range of materials including biobased, traditional polymers and silicone.
Why is it important to fill in our a Development Questionnaire?
The Development Questionnaire is a vital part of our development process. The Design and Engineering Team use the information in this to make decision around the formulation of material and the design of the profile. This can have implications on the cost of the component.
What are some of the key information we need?
As well as the Development Questionnaire, the other useful information are,
We are investing in our own technology to produce 3D prototypes. We have also partnered with the leading 3D printing specialist, so we can produce rapid prototypes of our customer's profiles.
Our R&D Team use the latest 3D Flow Modelling so we can virtually trial our dies. This cuts down the traditional time for R&D, meaning we can turnaround Off-Tool Samples (OTS) faster and more efficiently.
Whether you're looking for help in new product design or improving processes or advancing your sustainability behind an existing product, our team is here to help.
