"The Best Equipment, the Best Advice - for 25 years !"

In 1983, Jacques de Reuck began importing and selling metal spray supplies in New Zealand. Initially working from home, Jacques soon discovered he had a natural flair for business and this combined with his enthusiasm for metal spray technology and easy-going charisma quickly developed a loyal customer base and steadily increasing turnover. His native fluency in French helped to secure contracts from throughout French Polynesia and now, after twenty five years, Metal Spray Suppliers (NZ) Ltd operates from a purpose-designed facility in Auckland, employing four other staff members distributing metal spray products throughout New Zealand and the world.  
MSS (NZ) Ltd is responsible for selling the first HVOF in Australasia and the first HVAF in the world. MSS is the only New Zealand company totally dedicated to the thermal spray industry.


Over the intervening twenty five years, Jacques’ passion for the metal spray industry has never waned:
"My interest in metal spraying came about after years of struggling to control rust on my 24 foot steel sloop. To begin with I saw the technology simply as a very effective method to prevent corrosion and while anti-corrosion is still by far the biggest application for metal spray I have been constantly amazed at the variety of engineering problems which can be solved with the appropriate coatings - ranging from reclaiming worn parts off vintage tractors to applying metal spray coatings to jet engines."


Jacques’ philosophy has always been to maintain an active interest in the specific applications his customers are dealing with and now after 25 years his experience and knowledge are extensive and much sort after.
"Dealing with Jacques has always been a unique experience. He's never been one to sell a bunch of equipment and then leave us to it. We know we can always draw on his knowledge and if we present him with something he hasn't had experience with, he's always prepared to go the extra mile and find answers to our questions."
(Dave at Triple R Engineering Ltd)
"I think we've been dealing with MSS pretty much since it began and I've always had great respect for Jacques honesty and enthusiasm. He'd never sell us a piece of equipment which wasn't the right thing for the job and I'm quite happy to admit that there have been a number of occasions when we've leant quite heavily on him for advice."
(Bruce at Holster Engineering Ltd)

MSS (NZ) Ltd also enjoys a strong working relationship with Metallisation in the UK and the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Auckland. Jacques regularly attends national and international conferences on metal spraying or corrosion topics and has presented many papers to the industry on the work he has been involved in.
