Based in New Zealand, Tru Design specializes in the design, manufacture and marketing of high quality marine valves, skin fittings, hose nozzles and associated products.
All our products are made in New Zealand and are made out of the latest high impact resistant composite plastic materials designed to meet the demands of the modern boating industry and conform to rigid ISO Marine Standards.
Established in 1974, we are an ISO 9001 company with over 30 years experience in design tooling and manufacture of injection moulded engineering plastics. We have over 50 staff including designers, engineers, toolmakers and quality assurance specialists. Tru Design is well positioned to take products from design concept through tooling and into moulded production, assembly, testing then product approval and despatch. The nozzle range was produced in 1978 and is used extensively throughout the world in specialist applications such as fire fighting, marine and agriculture where strength, quality and reliability are paramount. The marine range was developed as a result of the growing concern and regulation of untreated sewage being discharged from marine vessels. The multi-port diverting valve (Aquavalve®) was developed along with associated skin fittings and vented loops to allow commercial and recreational craft to comply with the new regulations. The marine range has grown significantly to include the electronic diverting valve (Electronic Aquavalve®) and a comprehensive ball valve range that includes electronic monitoring of the ball valve position.
