Jackson Industries is proud to support Emirates Team New Zealand’s bid for the America’s Cup.

The relationship between Jackson Industries and Emirates Team New Zealand goes back over 20 years, working together to supply large format CNC machining and Power distribution systems. With ever evolving boat designs, Jackson Industries continues to support Emirates Team New Zealand with high-tech solutions.

The team at Jackson Industries wish Emirates Team New Zealand all the best in Bermuda.

Go New Zealand!!!  Bring it Home.

Jackson Industries’ founder and Managing Director Jim Jackson adds:

“It’s been a highly collaborative relationship – one which saw part of ETNZ’s engineering and construction team move on to our Onehunga site nearly two years ago. Over that period the combined teams have produced dozens of parts including dagger boards, rudders, elevators and other AC50 components. It really has been amazing what’s been achieved by both teams pushing the limits”

Emirates Team New Zealand, CEO Grant Dalton commented:

“Jackson Industries have been yet another of the unsung heroes of this campaign in terms of what they have contributed to the team and the campaign.

They have operated to a fantastically high level of quality over 2 years under constant pressure to deliver what could turn out to be some of the most important components to helping us win the America’s Cup.”
