Knowing what you want in life is always a clear run to the finish line , but innovating on need is a true challenge.  It was engineering and innovation that led John Suckling into the fabrication business in Auckland , starting off as a partnership trading as ‘Precision Sheetmetals’.  The Suckling Family primarily manufactured steel products ranging from Stainless steel to Aluminium, this is where John was first introduced to the Novalok brand.

Novalok’s inception began with a company called Modempak producing IT equipment in a new innovative and progressive market.  The Suckling family took this over in 1990 and moved the company to Wanganui in 1993to continue their quest in providing a range of shelving products.  From this move in innovation John discovered a product in the market that he had to compete with, this product involved plastic shelving.  Innovative minds came together and created the Novex system which over threw the market and is still a leader today in innovation and hygiene.

In mid 2010 Novalok took over the Victor brand, introducing a larger market of Pallet Racking and introducing the Victor innovation into their own and marketing these options along with their own.

Along with this the company kept producing products putting their innovative USP to work to create a successful formula that mixed local fabrication with international brands and products.

You will always find part of the Suckling Family in the mix and involved in some part of the process.  Even to this day, the newest product in the Novalok range, The Cantivex was created by close family who today still make up the Senior Management roles in the company.

What started as just two staff members is now a company who employs a professional team to run the factory, office, sales team and showroom proving that Novalok has not only been a success story but will continue to be a success for decades and generations to come.

Novalok is the New Zealand entity of an international group of companies with a long history of supply to markets worldwide. This gives us access to some of the most specialised applications for the medical, scientific and food service markets.

To support our growth, Novalok Ltd recently acquired Victor Industries, giving you access to a greater range of storage equipment. The Victor brand has been dominant in the shelving and racking market since the company was incorporated in 1967.
