Our History


Corkill Systems Limited (CSL) began in 1988 as the importing, manufacturing and national marketing partner for its sister company, Corkill Electrical Limited (CEL). CEL was an electrical contracting company providing installation and field testing services for CSL and acted as the local region business partner. Both achieved Telarc Q-Base registration in 1995. Corkill Electrical was sold in 2001.


We specialise in research and development and manufacture of automated products both for itself and under contract for other companies. Several products have been multiple award winners at the NZ National Fieldays, being recognised in 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001 in both New Equipment and Prototype categories.


Some of these products were instrumental at the time in Corkill Electrical being recognized as the 1999 Taranaki Medium Business of the year and the Electrical Contractors Association of New Zealand (ECANZ) 1999 National Small Business of the Year.
