Kiwivac Central Vacuum Systems started out in Whangaparaoa in 1983, originally importing vacuum units from America. In 1992 Jim designed and started manufacturing the Kiwivac brand of Central Vacuum System here in NZ, creating a New Zealand owned and operated company, which still stands today. As the Kiwivac brand became more well-known a dealer network was created to cover the whole of the country and within a couple years Kiwivac became the leading Central Vacuum manufacturer in NZ. To date we have installed over 13,000 systems in people’s homes and commercial premises.
In 1999 Jim, wanting to retire, sold the business to the present owners, William and Michelle, who moved the manufacturing to Drury, South Auckland.
In 2009 we added the AVT- Advanced Vacuum Technologies power units to our range, known for its unique Stainless Steel Shroud and slide plate emptying system.
Our number one passion and focus is and always has been the Central Vacuum industry. Over the past 2 decades we have learned a tremendous amount about all aspects of Central Vacuums, homeowners’ needs, cleaning dynamics and product engineering. We believe in providing the customer with a quality product and accessories and are committed to reliable and friendly customer service, meaning you can trust us with your Central Vacuum System and we will do everything to create an enjoyable experience for you.

Thank you so much for installing my new vacuum system, yes I did try it out and oh my gosh it is powerful, I haven’t experienced such suction before!!! Your boys did a great job and am very happy with their work.
Also, one more query, we have a new air-conditioning unit in the box still, do you install these. If so we would like this job done as well.
Thanks again for the prompt service.
Elizabeth and Jim
I’d like to sincerely thank you for the amazing service. I contacted you via email on Monday morning and within a few hours, a lovely lady had called me and sorted out the two issues I had. Within two days I had the spare part I needed.
It was such a pleasure dealing with your company, and the lady I spoke to. I’m sorry I can’t recall her name. I shall be keeping your details for when I need help with my ducted system in the future.
Thanks Michelle. Parts arrived this morning. Very happy wife zoomed around the house. ‘Oh it’s so magic’ she said.
15 years out of the hose and vacuum head and we can still use the old one in the garage.
I meant to email you earlier this week ? just to let you know that the order arrived Monday ? incredible service, thank you so much ! I feel so much happier with a clean house. Happy Friday and have a lovely weekend.
We’re all up & running.
Thanks for the prompt supply.
Thanks very much for so promptly acknowledging my request. I look forward to hearing from Pete.
I can’t tell you how much better Kiwivac is than our last one!
“We changed our central vacuum system to Kiwivac after moving into a new build 2 years ago, where a different system had been supplied by the builder. There was no comparison on how much better Kiwivac was to the other system, which was not performing. The service for Kiwivac was also exceptional. We already knew Kiwivac was reliable after living in a 12 year old home with a Kiwivac system that always worked well previously.
