The cornerstone of our innovation

Our business just wouldn’t be without our people. Their passion, tenacity and fighting Kiwi spirit keeps our wheels of creation rolling. Here’s a snap-shot of Equiptec’s driving force...

Bruce Senior

Managing Director

A qualified Joiner by trade, Managing Director Bruce Senior has spent almost 30 years growing Equiptec into the industry leader it is today. "What makes working for Equiptec so rewarding is knowing that our innovations are helping customers all over the globe work safer, more comfortably and more efficiently," says Bruce. "Working alongside a dynamic, disciplined team is a high point for me because we're all equally passionate about finding safe, sturdy and economic solutions to our customers problems." When he’s not at work, Bruce likes to keep busy with his own building projects around the home, as well as exploring the great outdoors in his area.
