About Us

Independent Wrap Ltd was founded by Lydia Dickinson at the age of 21 and is based in New Plymouth, Taranaki. It soon became apparent that owning her own business and being involved in the agricultural industry is something she is passionate about. It was deemed feasible for another agricultural importer to enter the market and an opportunity to stamp her mark on the crop packaging industry.

With a basic knowledge and much determination Lydia established Independent Wrap Ltd in May 2004.

Our Team


Lydia Dickinson

Managing Director & Sales Taranaki

Lydia worked in the industry in 2002 for Brian Hancock at Independent Commission Agencies Ltd and in 2003 he sold his company. It was not feasible for Lydia to buy, or go out on her own at that stage, so Lydia decided to leave the industry and pursue other adventures.

Originally the sales area focus was on the top half of the North Island with service being the point of difference.  Independent Wrap also worked with TAH Agencies (Trevor Hill) suppling him with twine and net as he didn't import, and left him to service the Manawatu and Hawkes Bay area.  In 2009 Independent Wrap purchased TAH Agencies. 

With the North Island covered and going well, in 2011 Independent Wrap extended its area again this time into the South Island.  North, Mid and South Canterbury were then being serviced.

Lydia serviced this large area solely for many years and the next step was to employ dedicated Sales Area Managers. 

Both Wayne and Ed are serious about service and are a great fit for the business going above and beyond for clients in the demanding ag season.

Lydia continues as the Sales Area Manager for Taranaki and manages the business from New Plymouth.

Independent Wrap sponsors and exhibits at the annual Rural Contractors New Zealand Conference.  Every few years Lydia visits Europe to develop relationships with suppliers and source new products.  This is also an opportunity to attend the agricultural field day in the UK - Grasslands - to increase knowledge and be up to date with the current trends within the industry.

Independent Wrap has also been successful with many Business Awards:

  • Winner of the Service Industry Excellence Award at the Taranaki Business Awards 2015
  • Commended for Service at the Taranaki Business Awards 2009
  • Highly Commended Medium Business at the Taranaki Business Awards 2009
  • Winner of the Agricultural Services Award at the Taranaki Business Awards 2007
  • Winner of Best New Business at the Businesswoman of the Year Awards 2006

What our customers are saying

"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)
“This season we went back to using Newrap. It may cost a little more but its consistency through our machines and puncture resistance is well worth the extra expense to know the job is done right! The lack of tails is great – better to have the wrap on the bale than blowing in the wind!!”

- Dean Parkes – Parkes Contracting Ltd – Te Awamutu (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)
"We have ran Newrap for two seasons now, and found it to perform exceptionally well with our varied crops, conditions, and machines.  This coupled with friendly professional back up provides us both confidence in Independent Wrap and their products".

- Steve James – Steve James Contracting Ltd – Te Anau (2017)
"I used Expert 21 micron film and Atlas 1.3m wide net for the first time last season. I found both products to be very reliable and robust, and great value for money! I will happily use them again for the coming season.”

- Tony Holden – Tony Holden Contracting Ltd – Clinton (2016)
“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)
“Newrap handled the stalks of Lucerne well! Also the product ran through the machine smoothly, only getting off to change the rolls.”

- Greg Drummond – Eyre Estate Farms Ltd – Lumsden (2016)
“Pit covers are clearly meter marked, well packaged, and are high quality at a competitive price!”

- Jason Weld – Forage Services Ltd – Palmerston North (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)
“I used Newrap 5 layer film for the first time last season and I believe it is the best wrap I have ever used, and the price was more competitive so I made a saving!”

- David Wordsworth – Wordsworth Partnership – Dargaville (2015)
“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 tried Ecoplast for the first time this season. I was so impressed that I changed from my previous supplier to using only Ecoplast. It’s very cost effective and it’s very consistent; put 2 rolls on and don’t get out till they're finished. That’s how it should be, I don’t expect anything less.”

- Chris Simpson – CJ & RM Simpson – Feilding (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)
“Atlas 1.23m net is faultless through our McHale balers; it feeds and spreads well across the bale. The roll goes in the baler and needs no attention until it’s time for a new roll. Delivery is well organised and problem free.”

- Mike Morris – Morris Contracting Ltd – Otautau (2018)
