Nova by Teknatool


Teknatool® International has been a global manufacturing exporter since 1980 with facilities in New Zealand, China and the US. They are a Kiwi (New Zealand) owned company and are passionate about the development of emerging technology and ‘next generation’ exporting ideas.

Teknatool® has expanded from their traditional markets in DIY/woodworking into metal, motor, driver and generator technologies, and are continuing to develop and commercialise their proprietary intelligent drive technology, the DVR smart motor, under a subsidiary company (the Striatech brand). This cutting edge, energy efficient technology can be incorporated into a wide range of products. The expansion of this division of the company will transition them from a traditional niche machinery manufacturer into a global technology solutions provider.

Teknatool®, under the NOVA brand, continues to collect remarkable accolades in the industry, being awarded the Top 5 of ‘the 25 Most Innovative Products of Past 25 years’ by Wood Magazine (for the invention of the 4-jaw lathe chuck) and consistently voted ‘Best Value’ and ‘Peoples’ choice’ in independent product tests.
