Origins and Evolution

The company was founded in 1876 in Dunedin, New Zealand, by John Donaghy.  A determined and hard working man whose vision left the legacy that is today a name synonymous with rope, cordage and extruded and injected plastics in Australasia.  The company was built on a work ethic that continues today.

Now a reputable and integral part of the rural community, Donaghys is a ‘can do’ company dedicated to growth opportunities, research and development and keeping pace with the ever changing requirements of progressive industries.  As such, Donaghys has evolved into a leading supplier of performance products with a wider brief and an international attitude.
