FTEK – Innovative Greenhouse Equipment Solutions


FTEK is a family owned business founded over 10 years ago by Mark and James Currie. Initially FTEK began life as a general design & engineering company (Prior to going into business Mark had 15 years trade experience as a qualified mechanical engineer, and James a proven background in product design and CAD development). The defining moment for where FTEK is now began during a contract to repair a fleet of glasshouse scissor lifts. Through observations and discussions with end users, growers and maintenance personnel, we could see a huge opportunity to introduce an innovative solution to improve end user experiences and safety, increase productivity, and simplify maintenance and servicing for this line of equipment.

The introduction of FTEK’s flagship product the TEK-LIFT, has catapulted FTEK to be the leading supplier of specialised glasshouse equipment and solutions in New Zealand. With a growing team of skilled & dedicated people, we are well positioned to be the preferred equipment provider in this industry, and proudly support a growing customer base in Australasia, with aspirations to be a global provider of leading product solutions.

Innovative Greenhouse Spray Robot with Air-boost Spray Application Technology

FTEK will be demonstrating our latest Tek-Spray unit, which is a fully autonomous greenhouse pipe-rail spray robot dedicated to precise and efficient application of pest & disease control sprays. We are pleased to announce the official release of our “air-boost” spray application technology which will be showcased at this year’s Horticulture conference. This innovative air assisted spray technology has been adapted to boost coverage in traditionally hard to reach areas of the crop, dramatically improving results whilst reducing chemical usage and intervals of spraying.
