Crop packaging products and their end of life solution are a major concern in the industry, and Independent Wrap acknowledges the responsibility importers have to help farmers deal with their waste responsibly. We are involved with the Agrecovery Foundation, most recently through a Design Working Group that involves various stakeholders in the industry. The Working Group is considering options for a scheme to process farm plastics that is fair for all stakeholders as the Ministry for the Environment has confirmed farm plastics are a priority product.
Independent Wrap supports and is an associate member of the Rural Contractors New Zealand (RCNZ). Click the image for further information on this organisation.
"Juta Big Blue twine has ran trouble free through our Massey Ferguson square baler for the last few seasons, due to its high quality, strength and reliability. This twine's performance is incredible; no knot rolls, no time out of the seat!! Well recommended".
- Shane Foster – Foster Farming 2013 Ltd – Rakaia (2017)
“With the different net options available from Independent Wrap we have always found a product to suit our machines over the years, also cost effective yet strong with great coverage! Independent Wrap are a company that is honest and I can depend on them”.
- Kevin Hermansen – Hermansen Contracting Ltd – Norsewood (2017)
"Since 2014 we have been using Independent Wrap 18m Pit Covers due to the outstanding performance, strength and reliability, giving us tried and tested consistency in our silage covers. Delivery and service is prompt and trouble free, Independent Wrap have never let us down".
- Hayden MacKenzie – H MacKenzie Contracting Ltd – Geraldine (2017)
“I was most impressed with the backup and service from Independent Wrap. It is great to deal with a conscientious company.”
- Nathan Armstrong – Armstrong Partnership – Becks (2016)
“Expert is one of the best silage films I have used after many years contracting so it was an obvious choice for me to use Expert for the 2015 season."
- Chris Holmes – CR & BF Holmes Contracting – Te Awamutu (2016)
“Independent Wrap’s products run well through our machines – Newrap, Atlas Net, Juta Net, and the Juta twine. The pit covers are great too. Plus they have great service, so it’s a no brainer as to why we chose them as our preferred supplier.”
- Lloyd Gernhoefer – Gernhoefer Contracting Ltd – Eltham (2016)
“Newrap is a brilliant film – there is no tearing of bales when we shift them. This is great when we are selling them on. Also the Juta 1.25 net is giving great coverage making for very tidy bales.”
- Ian Comins – Comins Contracting Ltd – Te Awamutu (2015)
“During a busy season, you need reliability and I know I can rely on the Pit Covers from Independent Wrap. They are always consistent from the quality of the plastic, good and strong; to the easy to read meter markings. Independent Wrap ensure we have quality Pit Covers when we need them.”
- Peter Green – Wattle Contracting Ltd – Te Kawhata (2018)
“I am pleased to say I have been working with Independent Wrap for several years now. They have been very consistent with high quality products and exceptional service. They go out of their way to ensure I have what I need, when I need it. They really understand my business and the industry!”
- Andrew Mabey – Mabey Contracting Ltd – Pahiatua (2018)
“Net Replacement Film goes a long way towards making better baleage, and I-Press from Independent Wrap does the job for me. It runs well in my Fusion 3 Plus, it is a very strong product and we get good bale numbers per roll.”
- Robert Sims – Sims Contractors Ltd – Otaki (2018)
“We have ran products from Independent Wrap since they have been in the lower South Island. We have trialled many twines in the past but the performance of the Juta is best, it ticks all the boxes. Atlas 1.3m net performs well through the Welger round balers, giving edge to edge cover every bale. Expert is outstanding in its field, whether used on squares or rounds, it has been consistent roll after roll, season after season.”
- Tony Holden – Tony Holden Contracting Ltd – Clinton (2018)
"We have been running Titan which has proven to be a very tough, high quality wrap. It has operated incredibly well in our hot dry conditions, through both the tube wrappers and combi without fault. Back up is great with good communication and delivery when needed."
- Jacob Holdaway – Jacob Holdaway Contracting Ltd – Ashburton (2019)
"The 18m 2in1 pit covers have been a great success on all crop types. Visually the crop is very different to a standard covered pit, a nice golden colour with no spoilage. The configuration of the cover and ease of pulling out over the pit is very good. The covers are of a strong high dart quality. Local storage is also a huge benefit with timely deliveries."
- Steven Shearing – Steven Shearing Contracting Ltd – Riverton (2019)
"We use Isolstar Press Net Replacement Film through our New Holland. I-Press runs through the baler nicely and always spreads over the edge of the bale. With good bale numbers per roll and the strength of I-Press we are very happy with the performance and our tight solid bales."
- Michael Davidson – Davidson Contracting Ltd – Whanganui (2019)
"I used Newrap this season and found it to be a great, strong, reliable wrap. The product is consistent with minimal breaks while wrapping resulting in less time out of the tractor so we are more productive. With Paul being based locally in the Manawatu, the level of service has been fantastic!"
- Jeff Erard – Erard Contracting Ltd – Feilding (2019)
"We have been using Independent Wrap for our crop packaging products for 15 years. They have always provided quality products at a fair price. Their great service means deliveries are when and where we need them so we can be confident we can get the job done!"
- Aaron White – Owen White Ltd – Hunua (2019)
I can rely on Expert. It’s a high quality strong plastic that runs right out to the core every time. The added benefit of the 1900m length rolls allows me to get more bales wrapped before needing extra rolls brought out to the job.
- David Wordsworth – Wordsworth Partnership – Dargaville (2019)
“With the distances my guys have to travel to jobs, the longer covers are essential. 450m means less rolls and less annoying ends. There is no sacrifice on quality, walking and throwing tyres on these covers is not an issue.”
- Ross Alexander – Alexander Ag Ltd – Kaikohe (2020)
“As a large-scale goat farmer, we do all our own baling. I-Press 1.38 runs very well through our Fusion 3 Plus and gives us the security we need to know that when we go to feed out, we’re feeding quality.”
- Henry Smitstra – Smitstra Contracting – Matamata (2020)
“With making and trading bales we rely on good wrap. Agroland is very durable and consistent when wrapping round and square bales of varying crop types. As well as faultless running through the wrapper, it makes Agroland excellent value.”
- Tharan Rule – Hay Ruler Feed Supplies 2015 Ltd – Winton (2020)
“Expert performs very well and handles our coastal weather, battling the elements that’s thrown at it. Regardless of being in a stack or placed on the crop its performance is second to none.”
- Paul Menpes – Menpes Contracting – Riverton (2020)
“We have used 15m x 300m Pit Covers from Independent Wrap for five seasons. The quality is superior to anything else we’ve tried.”
- Jason Weld – Forage Services Ltd – Palmerston North (2020)
“We ran Titan which proved to be a high quality tough wrap. No issues meant less time out of the tractor saving time and money. Delivery and back up is fantastic!”
- Russell Agnew – Trusty Contracting Ltd – Hastings (2020)
“Master Force 110 has been well received by our operators and has run very well through our Claas Quadrants and MF2250/2270 balers. It is also very cost effective. The superior service from Independent Wrap has only been enhanced with Dave in the Upper South Island region.”
- Jacob Holdaway – Jacob Holdaway Contracting Ltd – Ashburton (2020)
“Switching to Golden Net proved to be a great decision. It is strong and runs through the balers without issues. You can just put the roll in and forget it until it runs out.”
- Craig Wilson – Multi Ag Ltd – Waimate (2020)
“Classic has performed very well through our Fusion 3 Plus enabling us to provide a quality product and be price competitive so our customers are very happy.”
- Vickie Thompson – Rycam Ag Ltd – Hamilton (2021)
“Last season we changed from a recognised market leading product for wrapping our bales to Agroland, which preformed faultlessly at a far more affordable price. It exceeded our expectations.”
- Stan Windlebourne – Windlebourne Contracting Ltd – Whangarei (2021)
“Our baling conditions can vary from flat paddocks to hill sides. Titan and Newrap worked well for our varying terrain and crops. Our Krone balers liked Golden Net, feeding well and holding a good bale. Feedback from our client base has been very positive.”
- Peter Marshall – Marshall Ag and Baleage – Mosgiel (2021)
“We ran Isolstar Press 1.28 and 1.38 through our recently purchased New Holland Combi. It fed and ran well through the baler, spreading evenly across the bale giving good consistent cover. This combined with the Classic wrap at the back worked very well for us.”
- Brittany Stuart – Hamish Stuart Contracting – Invercargill (2021)
“Since changing to only using Expert from Independent Wrap, our drivers’ comment that due to the lack of tails it’s nice to be able to drive down the road and not look like a party streamer! We also run Atlas 1.23 Net through all of our Fusion balers; you just load the roll and forget it until it runs out.”
- Hayden Hahn – Coastwide Forage Solutions Ltd – Dobson (2021)
“We have used and trusted Independent Wrap for all of our baling, wrapping and silage products for a number of years. The quality of the product and the service levels we receive are outstanding.”
- Peter Flintoft – Flintoft Contractors Ltd – Rotherham (2021)
“Longer rolls are more cost effective and it’s less down time which lowers our overheads and improves our efficiency. We are using Expert silage wrap 1900m, Atlas 1.23/4500 net which is very strong, and 15m x 450m pit covers. We have used these for the last couple of seasons and we find we get better productivity without compromising quality.”
- Marc Gopperth – Gopperth Contracting – Auroa (2021)
