RFD New Zealand

As a subsidiary of Survitec Group Limited, RFD NZ is able to draw on the resources and expertise of RFD (Australia) Pty Limited and RFD Beaufort Limited among others.

Established in 1963, RFD NZ is the longest-running safety and survival business in the country. And with four branches (in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Nelson), it's the only marine safety company with a true nationwide focus.

Not that marine safety is all that we do. We also look after the needs of the aviation industry, maintain a strong tie to the armed forces, and supply safety products to hunters and trampers.

To us safety is everything. There is no margin for error or complacency. That's why regular and rigorous servicing and maintenance is an integral part of our ethos.

If you're planning an adventure grab the opportunity with both hands - just make sure you're prepared for whatever might happen along the way.
