New Zealand-based security and network monitoring equipment vendor Endace is to bring its manufacturing operation back to New Zealand, after outsourcing it to Singapore in the early 2000s. In a statement today, Endace announced that it has partnered with Christchurch-based GPC Electronics in a contract manufacturing deal.
Endace founder and chairman Dr Ian Graham is quoted as saying: "Bringing our manufacturing to New Zealand means that it’s closer to our Auckland headquarters and our Hamilton product development hub.
"For us, this means better quality control, greater production flexibility and vastly improved communications.
"We’re delighted to be manufacturing here and to help prove that New Zealand can be a competitive place to build high-tech products."
Endace was founded in 1995, from a research project at Waikato University.
