Nu-Wall’s manufacturing partner is McKechnie in New Plymouth, the company that pioneered aluminium extrusion in New Zealand. With a history reaching back to 1871, McKechnie is a time-tested producer of quality metal products for construction.
McKechnie also have anodising and powdercoating facilities, which means Nu-Wall products can be completed in one location.
There’s another reason why McKechnie is a great partner for Nu-Wall - they have their own aluminium recycling plant. All scrap generated during the manufacturing process is re-melted, along with scrap purchased from recycling merchants and other extrusion plants. Aluminium can be continually recycled with no loss of quality. What’s more, re-melting aluminium uses only 5% of the energy required to create virgin aluminium from bauxite ore.
