ORIGIN AGROUP Story

Origin Agroup was established in 2004 by a group of independent retailers throughout New Zealand to import and distribute farm machinery to its member shareholders.

Over time it has experienced formidable growth and has firmly positioned itself and its products on the market.

This rapid growth and expansion would not have been achieved by any other business model, says Managing Director, David Donnelly

“Quite simply our success is due to the fact we adopted a co-operative business model with co-operative principles and ethos which fairly represents the shareholder members and their customers’ interests.

“Co-operatives are founded on strong values, and we put them into practice every day. With relationships built on trust, co-ops enable the member owners, customers and suppliers to work together to serve everyone’s needs.”

“Our objective is to ensure that New Zealand farmers and contractors get the best possible equipment, that the machinery they need will be available when they need it, and that they will be well looked after by the members of the Origin Agroup co-operative with service and parts when they need it most.

Origin Agroup imports its products directly from overseas manufacturers on exclusive market distribution agreements; this provides its shareholder members and their customers with a competitive range of quality products.

Origin Agroup distributes many successfully recognised European brands of machinery which include POTTINGER cultivation, seeding and grass harvesting equipment; ALPEGO power harrows, rotary hoes, mulchers, seed drills, and sub-soilers; DAL-BO cambridge rollers; MANIP tractor front end loaders; BOGBALLE fertilizer spreaders; HATZENBICHLER air seeders and harrows: MAMMUT silage stack spreaders; GASCON disc harrows and chisel cultivators: and JOSKIN slurry and muck spreaders and transport trailers.
