KANDO began with the drive to make New Zealand a safer, more efficient and more confident place to work through developing and implementing the latest technology. Not satisfied with keeping our innovations a secret to the rest of the world, KANDO is on a mission to transform industries and manufacturing internationally, by helping businesses and industry leaders set global benchmarks for performance and safety.
Leveraging the latest advances in engineering, automation, and machine vision technologies enables us to address some of today’s biggest workplace challenges. Challenges like labour shortages in skilled and seasonal work, reducing the amount of time spent training, enabling workers to return home safely without injuries, minimising downtime and wastage, and increasing the productivity and quality of outputs within primary and industrial sectors.
Home to the Guardian Bandsaw and the world’s first and only automated mussel opener, KANDO engineers work closely with industry leaders to discover and develop innovative ways to automate or improve manual, repetitive or potentially dangerous processes.
There are times when we identify potential problems or possibilities for improvement before industries do. We do that with a serious knowledge of the capabilities of technology, drawing on the smarts of our diverse team, and relentlessly seeking opportunities to make our industries, and the people that work within them, bolder, better, and safer.
