Meet the Netmaster Team
Netmasters philosophy is Best Quality, Value and Service.
Tony Smith started Netmaster over 45 years ago. Netmaster was a substantial manufacturer of horticultural nets in New Zealand and was the last remaining producer in New Zealand up until 8 years ago. Tony has a wealth of experience in the design and development of nets suitable for New Zealand's conditions. Our nets today are sourced from factories overseas by companies who are able to exactly match these production standards which Tony checks and Tony is very involved still in the design of our nets. So we know that our products are of the best of quality for the New Zealand market. Being a direct importer means we can get the best possible price for the commercial users and distributors. When you call in Tony will answer the phone and loves to share his vast knowledge of the industry helping with any questions or queries about Nets and there many uses, how to measure up your requirements and ideas on installation.
We are a family based business and Tony's daughter Linda Hopper joined the company 6 years ago and works in administration, marketing and sales. She has a background in Sales and marketing and worked for Redvale Lime Company for over 8 years selling lime and fertilizers and aggregates to the horticultural and farming sector.
Dean Hopper joined Netmaster a couple of years ago to support the Sales Team. Dean comes from a background of farming and was very involved in the management of a family business growing Stone fruit and a berry orchard in Cambridge. Dean is also a qualified builder and is able to use his knowledge helping people decide the best way to erect or attach their nets and to work out the square metres required.
