Design and Manufacture

We use the latest 3D Solid Modelling CAD software to ensure our designs are effective, fit for purpose and most important, safe. This state-of-the-art software means we respond quickly to customer demands for specialised and custom products, and provides customers with reliable, cost-effective solutions.

Our manufacturing plant in Tauriko, Tauranga is set up specifically for the efficient manufacture of attachments. We've invested in a quality plant to ensure all fabrications are to the highest possible standard. Specialist stages of the manufacture are outsourced to specialised companies who have proven performance in the production of top-quality components. This approach ensures our customers receive quality products at realistic prices, representing outstanding value for money.


One of Doherty's Core Values is "Do it once, do it right, deliver what we promise".

Offering the full package from concept design and production through to delivery of finished product, our philosophy is to create a long-term partnership with our customers. We do this by providing safe, strong, quality attachments in a unique way which puts together the best of our customer’s needs.

All our company personnel understand, that quality is their responsibility, starting at the drawing board and finishing when the product is delivered and fitted. To achieve our quality policy, every stage has set QA procedures in place, and we're constantly monitoring and reviewing our procedures to ensure we deliver on our promise.
