Our Story

Established in 1980 by the French family from Palmerston North in New Zealand and purchased in 1997 by the Blampied Family. A family run company in a factory 20 years ago, tinkering with cattle chutes and a few things for local beef producers - now renowned for leading edge, quality cattle and sheep handling hardware and solutions, in  just about every corner of the globe. Thats some story.

"The Bluff"

Te Pari is the Maori word (native people of NZ) for 'the cliff' or 'the bluff' and was taken from the name of Pete French's farm and in recognition of the birthplace of many of the ideas for the first products manaufactured. Located in the Beaconsfield Valley (north of Fielding in New Zealand) and with the Kiwitea River running through it, the farm has a large bluff rising from the river. The Te Pari logo symbolises the sun rising over the bluff.

Our business. A history of being visionary.

When Pete French's father said there was a better way of docking lambs he surely started something. That thinking or DNA still runs true in Te Pari to the current day. With the 3rd generation of the Blampied family involved in daily operations of the company things dont look to be slowing down. Our vision is be a global leader in seamless livestock handling solutions. Equipment and technology that works together to improve your on farm profitability and efficiency.
