Our History in New Zealand

EXEDY has a long and successful history in the New Zealand automotive aftermarket, which can be traced back to 2008, when EXEDY purchased long standing automotive parts company Trade Parts. EXEDY New Zealand’s primary goal was to set the benchmark for service and provide customers with the country’s most extensive range of clutch components.

Based on these principles, vision, and dedication, EXEDY New Zealand quickly became the preferred choice for the country’s extensive network of brake and clutch specialists and rebuilders. EXEDY also established itself as a leading supplier to resellers of general automotive parts around New Zealand. After seven successful years in operation and an increasing demand from customers in New Zealand’s South Island, EXEDY Christchurch was launched.
