Pipe Dreams

Sanpro Industries supplies exhaust tube perforating machinery to the international automotive market. ‘Sanderson’ machines are used around the world to make the internal baffle tubes found in automotive and industrial exhaust mufflers.

Since its beginnings in 1992 as a small family concern, Sanpro has developed its machinery into what is now the industry standard among all of the largest automotive companies in the world – from Ford and BMW to Nissan and Audi, and even Harley Davidson.

Sanpro’s machines have become internationally renowned for speed, quality and reliability. “When I first started to develop the machine for the local market more than 20 years ago, I never dreamed that all these years later more than 70% of cars on the planet would have components in their exhaust system that were produced on a machine built in Petone,” CEO Malcolm Sanderson says.

Sanpro is currently gearing up to increase production and is looking to employ more local skills thanks to unprecedented growth. “100% of our revenue is export so we are less dependent on the fluctuations of the local market,” Malcolm says.
