About Us
Tas-Tech Services began some 20 years ago when David Dowd retired from The Princess Margaret Hospital and started making small amounts of daily-living aids in his son’s (Nigel) garage in Riccarton. While this was happening, Nigel had found himself being a full-time solo father of 5 month old twins.

Long story short, Nigel could see the potential in what David was doing and, with his help and the help of WINZ, grew the business to the point it out-grew the garage and moved into commercial premises.

While Tas-Tech Services primarily manufacture and supply rehabilitation equipment and daily living aids, we also open our wood-work workshop to clients with traumatic brain injuries allowing them to roll up their sleeves and make their own projects. The clients thrive in the workshop environment, benefiting greatly from the weekly structure, as well as building their self-confidence, self-esteem and growing their social skills.

Currently, the factory has Nigel and four full time workers, including the twins, Olivia and Taylor (now 26 years old). David sadly passed away in September of 2022 but before this still worked part time at the factory until the age of 88 years old!

Tas-Tech places its clients first and foremost and are big on quality and service. To find out how we can make your life easier, contact us today or download our latest catalogue.
