"In 1986 Les Halfpenny and I established NPA in the basement of a stationary wholesale business in Waymouth Street, Adelaide. Our surroundings certainly could not be described as luxurious and we both had to look upwards to see any hint of daylight that filtered through the small glass panels embedded into the footpath outside the building.
Within ten years NPA had matured into Australasia's leading supplier of Cable & Wiring Accessories, and is now operating from our modern warehouse facility in Kilkenny, South Australia. Today we continue as a potent force in the Electrical and Electronic Manufacturing Industry.
I am often asked “Why has NPA been successful when other businesses have not?”. I believe it is because we established some excellent partnerships early, and were (and still are) blessed with outstanding and long-serving staff. We value day-after-day reliability, persistence and we respond to our client's changing needs with solid solutions that just work.
Today we still maintain those close relationships with our suppliers that we started with 30 years ago. They backed our idea 3 decades ago, and today we consider them family. We have suppliers from all over the world and our own NPA manufactured products are second to none in value and quality.
I will forever be thankful to my family, our staff, our clients and our suppliers.
I am proud of our role in Australia's manufacturing industry. Our team has shared in the tears as well as the successes. These are challenging times for manufacturers in Australia. We stand in solidarity and sympathy with our partners in this sector because we believe that our success will always be linked to the success of our customers. "
