Home About Teknatool
Teknatool® International has been a global manufacturing exporter since 1980 with facilities in New Zealand, China and the US. We are a Kiwi (New Zealand) owned company and we’re passionate about the development of emerging technology and ‘next generation’ exporting ideas.
We’re currently expanding from our traditional market in DIY/woodworking into metal, motor, driver and generator technologies. We’re continuing to develop and commercialize our proprietary intelligent drive technology, the DVR smart motor, under a subsidiary company (the Striatech brand). This cutting edge, energy efficient technology can be incorporated into a wide range of products. The expansion of this division of our company will transition us from a traditional niche machinery manufacturer into a global technology solutions provider.
Teknatool®, under the NOVA brand, continues to collect accolades in the industry, being awarded the Top 5 of ‘the 25 Most Innovative Products of Past 25 years’ by Wood Magazine (for the invention of the 4-jaw lathe chuck) and consistently voted ‘Best Value’ and ‘Peoples’ choice’ in independent product tests.
