About Us

At Aqualine, we strive to achieve consistent and profitable growth for our customers and shareholders by developing high-quality, market-leading brands. With a passion for results, our goal is to become New Zealand's leading plumbing distributor.

Operating from our headquarters in Henderson, Auckland, and with a warehouse in Christchurch, our products are available through over 600 plumbing and building merchants nationwide. Our legacy dates back to the 1940s when Douglas Spackman started producing plumbing fittings in his Wellington home.

We recognize the crucial role that strong relationships play in driving our success. Our close partnerships with customers, employees, suppliers and shareholders are integral to our continued growth and prosperity.

Our highly experienced sales team is strategically positioned nationwide to offer tailored guidance and support to our plumbing merchant partners. They have a deep understanding of local market conditions and are well-equipped to provide customised advice and solutions that meet each customer's unique needs. By leveraging the expertise of our sales team and maintaining strong relationships with all stakeholders, Aqualine is poised for continued success.


In the late 1940’s Douglas Spackman began making plumbing related fittings on the lathe under his house in Wellington.

After selling to Consolidated Metal Industries (C.M.I) who began trading under Spartan Engineering from 1968 it was in 2012 when Spartan acquired Aqualine Products and made the decision to change its trading name and adopt the name Aqualine Products Ltd.

In July 2023, Aqualine Products was purchased by Jeff LaHaye and is now operating as Aqualine Trading Ltd.

As a leading supplier to the New Zealand Plumbing Industry Aqualine Trading remains fully committed to innovation and industry development through continuing Professional Development.


At Aqualine, as Better People we will do what we say we will. As Better Partners we will strive to build better partnerships with our customers and suppliers. With Better Products we will deliver dependability, no matter what!
