MARDAG Holdings Limited is 100% New Zealand owned and operated and provides innovative solutions for the electrical industry.


The company was established in 1988 when Anton van Rijssel and Marcus van Rijssel merged their electrical contracting companies to form MARDAG Holdings Limited and commenced trading as MDH Control Systems.


A few years later, Anton met with Hensel, a German manufacturer, to negotiate an exclusive agreement for the New Zealand market. The technical advantages of the Hensel product range was clearly evident and as a result, an exclusive trading agreement was signed in 1992. This contract proved to be the first of many agreements with leading global manufacturers.


Today, MARDAG exclusively represents over 20 European manufacturers in New Zealand and is focused on those that specialise in their respective fields. MARDAG is confident in the quality of its product range and ability to provide the industry with cost effective and innovative electrical solutions.


“Our greatest advantage is the direct knowledge and experience of our people. We understand the technical needs of kiwi electricians and we use this to help select and import only the best products. Knowing the day-to-day challenges and requirements of installation and maintenance, we’re able to help our customers find solutions they won't find elsewhere.”
