Our Story

Dyno is an innovative kiwi company that has been designing, manufacturing, and supplying conveyors and components for nearly forty years. With a reputation for solving problems, we’ve become a trusted conveyor solutions partner for many warehouses, logistics providers, processing facilities and manufacturers throughout New Zealand and Australia. 

We initially started supplying conveyors to the meat and fruit industry however it quickly became clear that standard conveyors on the market didn’t suit the product being conveyed. Building on our knowledge of conveyor principles and understanding of our customers’ requirements, we took it into our own hands and started designing and manufacturing conveyors ourselves. We wanted to be 100% certain that our conveyors would really work!

Over the years we have continued to innovate and adapt, staying up to date on the latest conveyor technology and practices with strong partnerships with local and global industry experts and vendors.  We’ve become the go-to people and now provide a wide range of conveyor solutions – from small stand-alone conveyors, dispatch lines or complete automated inline conveyor systems to a wide range of industries.

No one knows conveyors quite like we do and that’s why our conveyors make moving cartons, crates and pallets, simple and efficient.

Founding director, Trevor Cornes, really gets to know conveyors - spending time after school, working for his brother-in-law who assembles them. He then goes on to complete his engineering apprenticeship with a local engineer that developed the mould for the Dyno Chain.


Trevor purchases the assembly part of the business from his brother-in-law and continues to assemble conveyors to fruit packhouses and meat processing plants throughout Hawkes Bay.

Dyno works with a local plastic extruder to develop the Ø48mm Dyno Pipe PVC – we wanted something durable, that would handle impact and was cost effective. After many trials and disasters, a suitable material was developed, similar to what roadside markers are made of, and we continue to use to this day.
