Kiwivac Central Vacuums  – we know Central Vacuums inside out! 


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.
