In the mid 80’s Carl, Bert and Dawn’s son became actively involved in the business. Within a short period of time Carl’s experience in engineering and his desire to use the ‘right’ technologies in manufacturing and materials added even more strength to the Hansen Company. The results are the High Quality range of poly pipe fittings we see today. “We had a few teething problems with the original cold fit range, mainly around the single barb being difficult to get past the hard pipe when it was cold and the polycarbonate nuts breaking when a 130 Kg farmer tried to tighten up a 25mm fitting with a 24” pair of stillsons on a -5 deg Southland winters day! Ha, those were some fun learning times but we got those problems sorted, we should have labelled the fittings “Kiwi Proof” says Carl Hansen.
Right back in the beginning Hansen listened to what the customers wanted and today they are still listening!
Customers told us
“We love the Hansen fittings but we would love them even more if we could add a couple of subtle changes”
“The Research and Development team have been working on improving the Hansen Poly fitting for over six months. We feel that after taking into consideration customers feedback we have made the fittings even easier to use than before. But I guess the proof is in the pudding, we will just have to wait and see what they think!” says Hansen’s R&D Manager Phil Collins.
