HYDRAFLOW INDUSTRIES LIMITED (HIL)
THE BITTERNESS OF POOR QUALITY REMAINS LONG AFTER THE SWEETNESS OF A LOW PRICE IS FORGOTTEN
Hydraflow Industries is a privately owned company. New Zealand focused on the design and manufacture of high-quality innovative products for the consumer market. Founded in 1981, HIL manufactures and distributes an internationally acclaimed, line of food dehydrators under the registered trade name ‘EZIDRI’ and an electric food smoker appliance under the registered trade name ‘ANUKA’ and at the same time marketing
SUSHEZI’ a unique easy to use product for making perfect sushi, invented and developed in NZ.
EZIDRI is currently being marketed and sold worldwide in countries such as Australia and the Pacific Basin, Chile, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Israel, Malaysia, Romania Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, South Africa, Russia, United Kingdom, Ukraine, Malaysia,, and more recently negotiating contracts Asia and China.
In 1998, due to the prevailing economic conditions at the time compounded by high sea freight charges and the geophysical position of NZ to European markets, HIL negotiated through a third party business associate in Hong Kong, the transfer of the complete production tooling and dies to China.
Through this association, mandatory manufacturing standards were introduce and are continually monitored, incorporating a final Quality Control Certification. This program ensures that the high degree of quality and reliability are still maintained which has placed the ‘EZIDRI’ Dehydrator at the front edge of International dominance as verified by the numerous countries of distribution.
HIL’s more recent addition to the product range is the ‘ANUKA’ electric food smoker. Developed and designed entirely ‘in-house’ over a 6 year period, the Anuka is a product quite unique in the world appliance market, being the first of it’s kind for home and semi-commercial use. The ‘ANUKA’ duplicates the experience and taste of traditional smoking without the intricacies and mess of a fuel-burning smoker. Its non-stick coating, dishwasher safe material and auto-timing mechanism also ensures easy operation and cleaning.
With registered IP rights cover patents of function and design in NZ, Australia, USA & Canada and the EU Community Member countries, this product is also now totally manufactured in China, albeit with a different company to the EZIDRI manufacturer but under identical mandatory Quality Standards.
