About Us

Established in 1958, Douglas B Foote started a family-owned company in a Takapuna garage with a small team of 3.  Today, still family-owned, we now operate from our own purpose-built factory in Rosedale.

We have diversified into other engineering areas including marine, medical and aerospace.

We also manufacture a full range of stainless hose tails and adapters.

While the products we make have become more complex, our commitment to top-quality production and machining services at competitive rates has not changed.

Stainless Hydraulic Fittings

Unlike plated mild steel, stainless steel has a protective layer of chromium oxide that gives it superior corrosion resistance when exposed to corrosive environments. When mild steel hydraulic fittings are replaced with stainless steel, the service life of the fittings is far exceeded, reducing the overall cost and downtime by eliminating frequent replacements.
