Experience and Accolades


QSI has been designing and manufacturing premium quality health and safety equipment for over 40 years, drawing on over 70 years of safety experience. Our many years of manufacturing experience have given us a reputation for innovative product development.

Our service based approach, broad thinking on product development, and efficient cost structure has seen us continue to grow our market share in New Zealand.


These attributes were recognised by the New Zealand Ministry of Health when, in 2007, QSI won the government tender to provide 20 million face masks to  combat the threat of Bird Flu. The successful fulfilment of this contract required all aspects of QSI’s diverse skill set, from design and sourcing raw materials, manufacture, supply, distribution and stock management.

As a result, QSI won several accolades:

  • ABN Amro Craigs Supreme Business of the Year Award
  • Primary Industry Manufacturing and Exporting Excellence Award
  • Technical Industry Award
