Stoddart NZ Ltd acquires Halton Kitchen Ventilation

Stoddart NZ has aquired the manufacturing, sales and installation rights for Halton Kitchen Ventilation in New Zealand from Ravenscroft.

Halton is a world leader in kitchen ventilation solutions and Ravenscroft has been
engineering and supplying these solutions into New Zealand for the last 24 years.

Stoddart has manufacured Ravenscroft product in its Brisbane factory for the last few years so the company has seen the acquisition as a natural progression.

“The addition of Halton Kitchen Ventilation to our offering in New Zealand rounds out
our suite of products giving the industry a broader choice, backed up by the Stoddart
family’s absolute commitment to product quality and customer service.

“I would like to thank Malcolm Ravenscroft for creating this fantastic opportunity and Halton for giving the acquisition their full endorsement,” said Tony Stoddart.

Malcolm Ravenscroft added: “We have proudly represented the Halton Kitchen
Ventilation brand in NZ for many years now. It has been a great journey and I am
pleased to see the brand going to a good home with Stoddart.

” I am also very happy that John MacDonald will continue to be involved, joining Stoddart to continue building on the associations and contacts we have made over the last 24 years.”

Under Stoddart, the Halton Kitchen Ventilation brand will continue to be supported and developed and Stoddart and Ravenscroft will work together to achieve a seamless
transition. Halton Kitchen Ventilation Products have numerous advantages compared
to the standard kitchen ventilation units and they will remain at the cutting edge of the
market now and into the future.

Halton’s technology captures and removes cooking vapours much more effectively
than standard kitchen hoods providing better air quality and a more comfortabl
environment for chefs, as well as confidence that the maximum amount of cooking
fumes have been removed the kitchen in the most sustainable way possible.
