Arborline, Simply Adorable.

Welcome to Arborline Products Limited

Formed in 1979, Arborline Products has forged a reputation as one of New Zealand’s leading door manufacturers. A family owned company, service and quality are paramount with customer requirements always handled on a personal basis.

Each door produced in our Hamilton factory is individually crafted by experienced staff who take pride in the knowledge that their doors finish up gracing New Zealand’s finest homes.


Arborline Products was established in 1979 by Joe Jaques after the factory he had previously been involved in was razed to the ground in a spectacular fire.

With business partner Brian Smith and a staff of 5 or so he opened a new factory in Hamilton and began trading as a general joinery business.

Over the years doors became the emphasis with a large client being a caravan company and at one stage, courtesy of Rob Muldoon’s export subsidies, a substantial number being sent to Australia.

Arborline became a ‘family business’ with the addition of Joe’s sons Andrew in 1985 and Julian in 1993.

PVC edged and timber doors, both cabinet and entrance, have long been core products at Arborline and as kitchen trends demanded in 1995 Arborline purchased its first press and added Arborform (thermoformed) doors to the range. This style of door has grown enormously in popularity in the last decade and has made a considerable contribution to the growth of Arborline since its introduction.

This growth dictated that new premises were required and in 1997 a move across the road to the current factory was undertaken.

In 2000 Joe ‘hung up the apron’ and passed the day to day management of Arborline to Andrew and Julian. With a staff around forty Arborline continues to grow. A willingness to invest in new technology and the conscious emphasis on specialising in door manufacture would seem to ensure a solid future alongside the kitchen and joinery industries.
