Animal Control Products Limited is a state-owned enterprise of the New Zealand government. Its main business is the manufacture and sale of pest management products.

History[edit]

The company was established as a Crown-owned company in 1991 under its own legislation [1] but became a state-owned enterprise in January 2005.[2] It was formed from the business originally started in the 1950s by the (then) Ministry of Agriculture and the New Zealand Forest Service, mixing toxins and later manufacturing finished bait products.

It operates under the State Owned Enterprises Act 1986.[3]

Operations[edit]

Animal Control Products operates two manufacturing plants; one at Waimate in New Zealand's South Island and the other at Wanganui in the lower North Island. In addition to direct sales to government agencies such as the Department of Conservation, to professional pest control operators and to regional councils, it also sells its products in over 150 outlets throughout New Zealand.
