Our People

The cornerstone of our innovation

Our business just wouldn’t be without our people. Their passion, tenacity and fighting Kiwi spirit keeps our wheels of creation rolling. Here’s a snap-shot of Equiptec’s driving force . . . 

Bruce Senior

Managing Director

Equiptec wouldn’t be Equiptec without Bruce. He’s been onboard since day one, way back in 1994 – when we were still doing drop-offs in the Hilux Ute and vying for more workspace. A man of many hats, Bruce’s vision and dedication to evolve Equiptec into an industry leading supplier, has been invaluable. “What makes working for Equiptec so rewarding is knowing that our innovations are helping customers all over the globe work safer, more comfortably and more efficiently,” says Bruce. “Working alongside a dynamic, disciplined team is a high point for me because we’re all equally passionate about finding safe, sturdy and economic solutions to our customers problems.”

Gareth Smith

Business Development Manager

Since starting with Equiptec in 2016, Gareth and his dedicated taskforce, have been hard at work developing, marketing and selling all three of Equiptec’s brands. Although we keep him busy, he insists he’s happy. “The most satisfying thing about my job is finding the best solutions for our clients and having the best team to work alongside,” he says. “We’re an expanding company and we’ve got huge potential to grow into a large enterprise, so it’s really exciting to be a part of the journey.”

Rick Senior

Sales Manager

Joining Equiptec in 2013, Rick has thrived in our busy environment – which shows no signs of slowing down. He turns his hand to product development – ensuring products are up-to-date with industry demands and legislation; customer assessment – providing solutions; and technical compliance – testing and designing product audits to ensure safety standards and legislation is globally befitting. Although he struggles to sit still, he says it’s both the big and little tasks that continually inspire and drive him. “Every day brings new challenges and a variety of interesting projects which makes the job not your ordinary nine-to-five,” says Rick. “It’s busy and the way we handle this is by having a dynamic, spirited and close team of people onboard – we’re in it together.”

Becky Senior

Marketing Manager

The call to work with like-minded individuals was a huge drawcard for Becky when joining the ranks in 2004. Becky keeps things running like a well-oiled machine. She oversees our marketing projects and ensures the IT side of Equiptec – including the accounting – is covered from initial quotations right through to sale completion, and we rely on her for all auto ordering – from parts to manufacturing completed units. “For me, what makes work so rewarding is being involved in global solutions – helping clients the world over work safer and more efficiently,” she says. “I think being a small team makes us even more dedicated and driven.”
