Patience & Nicholson Changes Name

Wed, September 14, 2016  

Patience and Nicholson will be known as Sutton Tools NZ Ltd from September


Over 22 years ago the Sutton family invested in Patience & Nicholson NZ, New Zealand's only drill bit manufacturer.

On September 1st, 2106 Patience and Nicholson will now be known as Sutton Tools NZ Ltd.

For more than 50 years the business has been manufacturing precision cutting tools in Kaipoi just north of Christchurch. No need to worry as customers will continue to receive quality products out of the region.

Bay Engineers Supplies is a proud supplier of the Sutton product lines and will continue to do so into the future.  Although the name is changing the core brands including - Evacut, Patience and Nicholson, Sutton Tools and Frost will continue to be developed.

Congratulations to Sutton Tools who will soon celebrate 100 years of successful trading!
