About Us


In 1998, Bruce Farquhar fabricated his first rotational moulding oven and started in partnership with his wife Maree, BB & MC Farquhar trading as

Over the years, Bruce’s learnings have come from working alongside experienced engineers, skilled wood patternmakers, panel beaters, metal casting specialists, and CAD professionals.

PLAST-AX LTD has advanced as a company through many iterations of listening to our customers and investing in continuous product development.

Today we are relied as a specialist bin supplier by a broad range of New Zealand’s industry.

Our products are trusted for their strength, function, and enduring aesthetic appeal.

Our people are trusted as honest, loyal, problem solving team players.


Rotational moulding is our core manufacturing process.

In 2022 we commissioned a brand new oven that is custom designed to facilitate production of our largest fully moulded FEL and gantry bins.

Each bin takes about an hour to ‘cook’ and another 30 mins to cool to its 90ºC demoulding temperature, with our team shift working around the clock. From there our bins are ‘jigged’ so that shrinkage during the final cooling phase is controlled to the design dimensions.
