About Us

A Family Business With A Solid History

Best Quality, Value and Service 

We are a family based business with over 45 years of experience in the design and development of nets suitable for New Zealand's conditions.

Our founder, Tony Smith started Netmaster over 45 years ago. Tony’s expertise in the industry gained us the reputation for being one of the leading manufacturer of horticultural nets in New Zealand. We were the last remaining producer in New Zealand up until 8 years ago when the market changed due to international production efficiencies.

Today our nets are sourced from factories overseas by companies who are able to deliver to the production standards that we require for the New Zealand weather conditions. Tony keeps quality control over the design of our nets, so we know that our products are of the best of quality for the New Zealand market. We are a direct importer which means that we can get the best possible price for commercial use and distribution.
