Our Story

Cuddon Freeze Dry is a division of Cuddon Limited, which began as a small family engineering operation in Blenheim, New Zealand. While the company has grown in size and ambition since incorporation in 1938, eighty years on it still retains family ownership, and the same commitment to excellence and client service. Cuddon Freeze Dry was established in 1963 and, 60 years later, continues to lead from the front.

Our four product ranges, and custom-built freeze dryers, are all designed, fabricated and tested from our purpose-built facilities in New Zealand.

Together, our highly skilled work force includes technical designers, steelworkers, water engineers, refrigeration engineers and fitters, and the freeze dry team who optimise the performance of each freeze dryer and provide service support.

Our commitment to the manufacturing process takes in the whole manufacturing lifecycle from design, build, delivery, installation, commission to training and warranty providing a complete turn-key solution
