Fisher & Paykel offers 100 high skills jobs in NZ

Fisher & Paykel offers 100 high skills jobs in NZ

Feb. 28 (BusinessDesk) - Fisher & Paykel Appliances is to recruit 100 new, highly skilled staff over the next two years to boost the company's strengths product research and development as it deepens its relationship with its Chinese owner, global whiteware supplier Haier.

The plans call for a range of industrial engineers, designers and product developers to be split between the company's two development campuses in Auckland and Dunedin.

Cooking and dishwashing appliances are the focus in Dunedin, while Auckland handles refrigeration, laundry and sub-system product development.

The hiring drive comes after Haier effectively rescued F&P Appliances from collapse during the global financial crisis and is offered as evidence of the Chinese firm's commitment to exploiting the New Zealand company's innovation culture.

F&P Appliances last went on a major hiring binge three years ago, when it created 50 new high skills roles.

"Fisher & Paykel is focused on New Zealand-led expansion," said chief executive Stuart Broadhurst in a statement. "While we remain a standalone company with a strong, localised management team, our new owners are providing us the opportunity to deliver our business development plan far faster than we were previously planning."
