About Us

Company History

For more than 50 years Reid Technology has been involved in the New Zealand electronics scene as an importer, distributor and service agent. We will always be at the cutting edge of electronic technology.

We currently focus on Technology for Independence – this is the core value that runs through all of the products we offer.

Technology for Independence aims to improve the quality of life for the hearing impaired through assistive listening and living devices.

Solar power systems allow people to live independently in remote locations.

Grid connect solar power systems lessen people's dependence on the national grid.
David Reid Electronics was founded in 1956 by David J Reid.
The company quickly became a very popular electronic and electrical supplier with a retail chain of over 30 stores New Zealand wide.

In 1992 the retail business was sold to Dick Smith Electronics.
The technical arm of the business remained and at this point the company was renamed Reid Technology Limited.

The Healthcare and Audiology part of our business is nearly 30 years old. It stems from the 1980s when Reid Technology was the New Zealand distributor for British Hearing Aids and then Danavox hearing aids.

Currently we specialise in audiological products like hearing aid batteries, assistive listening devices and specially designed telephones.

We also distribute sound level meters, strain gauges and have a number of OSH related products including the revolutionary Hovermatt lateral patient transfer device.

Following the sale of the stores, Reid Technology entered the alternative energy and solar power market in 1995, when the BP Solar agency and staff were acquired from the Forgan Jones Company.

We have the capability to design, supply and install solar power (photovoltaic) systems.

Over the past five years, Reid Technology has designed, supplied and installed most of the large solar power systems in New Zealand.

We are very proud of the projects we have worked on. To have a look at some of our recently completed projects, click here to view the page.

Presently the company employs nine staff, and is based in North Harbour which is a fast growing suburb in the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Reid Technology Limited is a private company, proudly New Zealand owned and operated by the Reid family.
