The Beginning

G.B Petty Diemakers Ltd started its operation in 1962 from a garage behind the family home in Mt Wellington. These humble beginnings began with predominantly manual machinery and a learning of the craft of diemaking and diecutting.

Over the last 50 years significant changes have taken place in the printing and packaging industry and as such diemaking has had to evolve. 



The Journey

Automation and Technology have played a critical role over our history and we have been the first die making company in New Zealand to purchase Laser Equipment, Milling and Plotting machinery and Automatic Benders. These decisions have enabled us to stay at the forefront of the industry and keep pace with the ever changing world of printing and packaging.

We constantly invest in R & D and consider ourselves as the pioneers of the industry. We are proud of the technologies created here, now being utilised by competitors.



The New Chapter

Simon and Jude Henty the new owners are looking forward to replicating the success of the past 54 years and wish to ensure we remain at the "cutting edge" of the industry for the future years to come.
