The New Zealand company's primary business had been the import of group products but, by 1974, production staff had been strengthened and it had begun to manufacture about a third of its total turnover, including bakery machinery to Australian designs. A step change came at the end of 1978 with the purchase of the goodwill and assets of Industrial Heating Co. Ltd. of Auckland and Christchurch, giving the company a near monopoly of the industrial bakery machinery business in New Zealand. Jack Barnard, who was now in charge of Baker Perkins NZ was given the task of putting the two businesses together.
