At Pivot Innovation, our vision transcends beyond just creating products. We aim to redefine the landscape of innovation in Queenstown with a leaning towards the outdoor products industry in New Zealand through advanced manufacturing and cutting-edge technology. Our journey is fueled by the ambition to diversify and enrich the Queenstown economy, moving beyond its traditional reliance on tourism and hospitality whilst leveraging off and assisting in their continued success.
We envision a future where local creators are not just participants but leaders in innovation, harnessing the power of 3D printing, composites, and sustainable practices. Our goal is to make Queenstown a hub of technological advancement, where creativity meets capability, empowering every creator in the region to reach their full potential.
We’re currently searching for a suitable physical location in the Queenstown area to grow Pivot from, if you know someone with bare land or modern warehouse space we would love to have a chat.
