With over 30 years’ involvement in the heat transfer industry, we know how to find the optimum heat transfer solution for your needs. We have a large range of stock incorporating several different providers.

Because we’re not tied to a specific brand, provider or location, we can tailor-make solutions for you. Our flexibility means there is always more than one way to get a great result for your business.

Our aim is to achieve results which consistently exceed your expectations. We want to be your first port of call when you need a heat transfer solution – because when you come to us you know that we will be able to tailor-make something for you. And if we cannot satisfy your needs from within our range, we’ll suggest alternative solutions.

Clean Green Machines

HTNZ runs a clean green company. Wherever possible we recycle materials. For example, you may notice your orders sometimes come in recycled boxes and packing materials. So that wine box may hold new gaskets, not Pinot Noir.


We’re also looking at ways to recycle our scrap metal and anything that can’t be used.

We choose our heat exchangers to be easy on the environment. They will all meet the most demanding requirements – they’re fast, efficient, and built to last. With less waste and better output, we hope they are able to reduce the impact on the planet.
