CUSTOMER: Matcraft Industries
PROJECT: Mega Cow
MATERIALS: High Density EPS
A story of community, local industry and legacy – the Mega Cow is a proud achievement for all involved.
With the aim of cementing Morrinsville as a key player in the NZ dairy sector, the late Laurie Maber, former Mayor of Morrinsville, commissioned the design and build of this 6.5 metre high ‘Mega Cow’ – which sits proudly on the Main Street of Morrinsville.
Built by Matcraft Industries with Jackson Industries machining the moulds, the process involved over 300 hours of machining multiple blocks of polystyrene into female moulds. Fabricated in two parts, plus separate parts for the horns and legs, the cow came together at the Matcraft site and joins the likes of Ohakune’s carrot and Gore’s trout as a local icon.
