About Us

Powder Systems is a New Zealand owned and operated company that provides powder handling systems and services to our local food industry. We design, supply, install and maintain a range of systems, offering new equipment, parts and onsite service and maintenance. We’re specialists in pneumatic conveying systems, industrial dust filtration systems and metal contaminant removal solutions for the safe and reliable handling of powder materials.

Our key strength is in our ability to design and build bespoke processing systems that do exactly what our customers want them to do. Together we create efficient, safe and reliable handling systems for some of this country’s largest food manufacturers, including Fonterra, Goodman Fielder and George Weston Foods.

Founder Mathew Rae has over 25 years of experience in powder handling and dust extraction and has worked for several of the larger suppliers to these industries, including Donaldson and Nu-Con. That experience now forms the basis of our flexible solutions for customers. We know one size doesn’t fit all and work with our core suppliers to design and supply the right solution.

We are the NZ agent for Magnattack™ magnets, and authorised reseller and service agent for Donaldson® Filtration Solutions. Our maintenance and servicing team also supplies a range of parts and maintenance services.

Our customised process solutions offer:

  • Reliable systems designed precisely to your needs
  • Greater food quality and safety, and increased hygiene standards
  • Flexibility and support for increased production and scalability
  • On-site servicing and maintenance
  • Spare parts supply.


Our specialist knowledge in this industry means we
can design, supply and install the right solution for
your needs, whether that’s a full turn-key solution or
maintaining and improving your current system.
