About Us

Specialist fabricators in plastic and PVC goods since 1969

Polythene & PVC Products Ltd are importers, manufacturers and distributors of a wide range of products for farming, lifestyle block and industry applications.

Doug Potter Based in Gore, Polythene & PVC Products was started by Doug Potter, an ex-farmer who began in plastic fabrication in 1967, in pursuit of an alternative to canvas silage covers.  His success led him to set up Potters Supplies in 1969, which soon grew to become the Polythene & PVC Products we know today.

Doug has kept pace with technical innovations in plastic welding and fabrication, making substantial investments in Electronic Welding gear to ensure efficient operations and quality production standards are maintained.

Our Vision.


Growing to meet the Plastic Product needs of NZ farming

As specialists in the fabrication of Plastic and PVC goods, the company has evolved to meet a number of problems and needs of clients in farming, contracting and industrial sectors throughout the lower South Island.

In 1994 a fire destroyed the building and nearly wiped out the business, but Doug rebuilt the company, increasing its activities to import and manufacture a wider range of quality PVC and Polythene products for the market.

With our success came rapid expansion, and after 40 years and 3 changes of premises, Polythene and PVC Products Ltd now has eleven staff to run its industrial operations and manage the importing and distribution of its products.
