Valve manufacturer opens base at Portlink

Valve manufacturer opens base at Portlink

The opening of Cla-Val Pacific’s new 1100m2 manufacturing and warehouse facility at Portlink Industrial Park in Woolston is an encouraging sign for businesses looking to base themselves in eastern Christchurch.


Cla-Val Pacific, a leading manufacturer of automatic control valves, opened its new premises at the 30 hectare development earlier this month. Guests at the official opening included Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel and CEO of the Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce, Peter Townsend.

Cla-Val Pacific’s Regional Manager, Glynn Nuthall, said the company was thrilled with its new facility at Portlink, which is being developed by Arcus Developments Ltd.

“The key factor in our decision to choose this site was Portlink’s location adjacent to the Lyttelton Tunnel road which offers unparalleled ease of access for our operation’s exports to clients across the Asia-Pacific region”, said Nuthall.

Development Manager for Arcus Developments Ltd, Michael Pike, said that it was exciting to have Cla-Val Pacific opening its doors alongside existing tenants such as Kathmandu and NZ Express Transport.

“With the first two stages of the development complete, we are pleased to have such a great mix of well-regarded businesses established on site”, said Pike.
Elastomer Products Limited is also due to open its new premises at Portlink within the next month.

Portlink Industrial Park is being developed in eight stages, with stages three and four currently nearing completion.
