The global manufacturing exporter Teknatool, known for the well-established NOVA woodworking brand and intelligent Digital Variable Reluctance (DVR) motor technology with a subsidiary in the United States, has qualified as one of the few recipients, selected as beneficiaries of the Callaghan Innovation Fund. Joyce’s visit served to follow up on Teknatool’s previous experiences with the Callaghan Fund as well as Better by Design, and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, all of which focus on furthering New Zealand’s businesses to export globally. Teknatool seized the opportunity to demonstrate latest developments and Research and Development (R&D) progress.
