“Kilkenny Ice Builders have been installed worldwide, from Mali to Dubai, from Canada to Russia. While New Zealand is geographically very distant, their approach to dairy very much mirrors our own. The emphasis is on quality equipment and quality dairy produce. Our ice builder is proving very popular in New Zealand as a result.”
