History & Experience

Display Group - since 1972


We had our beginnings in 1972, and are now New Zealand's only company that specialises only in the design and manufacture of branded retail displays.

Our creativity in design, combined with our experience in engineering and manufacturing is highly regarded by many of New Zealand's leading companies and brands. Our long standing partnerships are the proof that they trust us to deliver to expectation every time.

Display Group started as the small company Nova Manufacturing based in Penrose manufacturing wire products such as dish drainers, shoe racks, fan guards and many other metal products. We then branched out into the manufacture of wire and tube display stands, and changed our name to Nova Displays which really started us on the journey to where the company is today.

Along the way we acquired a large scale printing business, manufacturing many types of retail displays and also products including kids toys, barbeques, indoor and outdoor signage. However the core business of designing and building retail display stands has always, and is still the company’s main focus. 

In the early 1980s the market, and in particular the cosmetics sector were demanding more displays constructed from plastics and acrylic. Being the specialists in this field we led the market with innovation and creativity. In 1987 we acquired Waimarie Plastics, which combined our specialist sheet metal and vacuum forming plant.

During this period we formed Display Group, which is the name we have been known as for over 30 years. The combined experience of our entire team in design, engineering and manufacturing is over 200 years!

We are experts, and key advisors to our highly valued clients. You can have absolute confidence in our capabilities that we will help you to achieve your targets and goals. These are just a few of our long standing clients: Cadbury’s, Mars, Coca-Cola, Johnson and Johnson and Feltex.
