About Us

Obertron Industries commenced operation in Hawera, South Taranaki in 1978 as a Plastics Electrical Products manufacturer and specialist provider of Industrial Electrical services. It has since grown into a seven-division enterprise known as the Obertech Group, with a strong commitment to innovation and customer-centric solutions. This effort and achievement has been recognised with business awards such as the “1998 WestpacTrust Taranaki Business of the Year Award” and “Certificates of Excellence in Innovation and Manufacturing”.

Obertech Groups divisions provide a comprehensive range of products and solutions that span across a wide range of industries and customers, throughout the country. Our divisions include Electrical and Instrumentation, Powerlines, Detection Services, Manufacturing, Security, Computing (including Telecommunications) and Technical Computer Networking/Data Communications and Fibre Optics. Each division operates independently directly complementing each other and resulting in an overall synergy that provides integrated and complete solutions to our valued customers.

Obertech is focused on providing high quality products and services, having obtained ISO 9001 initial certification from Telarc Limited in July 1997 and have since achieved an upgrade to ISO 9001:2015 Certification.
