Five Decades of Excellence

When NHP was established in 1968, founder, Nigel Peck, was determined to create a 100% Australian-owned company focused on providing the best service and highest level of quality products.

Two elements have formed the heart of this company:

  • Bringing the world to Australasia: NHP provides the very best the world can offer that supports our Australasian industrial conditions.
  • Services and solutions: NHP offers a great deal more than boxed production - services and solutions are essential elements in the unique NHP mix.

NHP commenced operations in 1968, and continues to grow from strength to strength...
