History, Today& the Future. Pluck’s Engineering has been in the Pluck Family hands since Graham and Glenis Pluck purchased the company as a going concern from Tom Gaylor and Bob Grigg in 1966, Neil and Lynley Pluck purchased the company off them in 2006.
The business was originally a Blacksmith shop and we believe it has been trading since pre 1900 in Rakaia through various owners.
The Pluck family take great pride in owning this company and its history and especially enjoy maintaining the very high standard of workmanship and products it has always sold or produced.
We the current owners continue to drive the research and development side of the business with a constant eye on the future of farming and which direction it is going. In doing so help to give New Zealand farming direction, in a small way, by not only manufacturing what our customers want, but also looking ahead to what sort of equipment they might need in the future, as farming continues to change over the years.
