Mission Kayaks

Why Mission Kayaks could
not resist PSI Brand

Mission Kayaking, a New Zealand owned and operated company established in Palmerston North, was the first plastic kayak manufacturer down under. They’ve spent the last 30 years designing and producing a range of high-quality kayaks and accessories. Mike from PSI Brand caught up with Patrick, Mission Kayaking’s Production Manager, to hear about their experience with our INMOULD graphic system.

 

For Patrick, switching to PSI Brand from their previous graphics supplier was a choice based on pure benefit. He chose PSI Brand as Mission Kayaking’s permanent branding provider for four main reasons.

Why PSI Brand

Patrick had 4 key reasons
he chose to use PSI Brand

  • PSI Brand offers stock holding options and flexible pricing which provided Patrick and the team at Mission Kayaking with a better bargaining position.
  • PSI Brand can accommodate small runs for roto moulding, but without the inflated price tag, which allowed Mission Kayaking to go out to the market with an offering that previously wouldn’t have been viable.
  • They required a really robust product in order to ensure that there were no production losses prior to putting the graphic onto the rotomoulded parts, such as the graphics becoming damaged in storage.
  • Mission Kayaking love our lead times, plus the fact that we not only communicate lead times upon placing an order, but stick to our promise! Read more about our 7-day lead time.

 

In addition, Mission Kayaking required short turnarounds and responsiveness to their unique production requirements. They would often be pressured by customers to produce a custom branded kayak within a matter of days, in which case PSI Brand would prioritise their order and always deliver on time.

Why use INMOULD graphics?

PSI Brand’s INMOULD graphics are the perfect permanent branding solution for rotationally moulded parts that are subject to harsh and abrasive conditions, due to their robust yet flexible construction and long-lasting finish. They offer a high level of durability and are suitable for virtually any environment – plus, as mould-in graphics using peel and stick technology, they’re incredibly easy to apply. Choose PSI Brand INMOULD for marine industry products that require vibrant, heavy-duty branding!
