Fisher & Paykel has been producing innovative and quality appliances since 1934. Their philosophy is built around not only understanding technology but people as well. They focus on building appliances that will enrich people’s lives and challenge traditional design.
Beginning in New Zealand, Olive Paykel had requested her husband import a Crosley Refrigerator for her after she had seen one in an American magazine. It turned out to be a popular request as more and more people began requesting the refrigerator in New Zealand, Olive’s son – Maurice Paykel and son-in-law Woolf Fisher, began their business importing refrigerators. When New Zealand eventually banned important manufactured products, Fisher & Paykel decided to manufacture their own appliances, in New Zealand.
