Our Story

Our Mission is You. We aim to deliver the best possible in driveline design, manufacture and componentry for whatever your need or circumstance.

Our vision to become New Zealand’s leader in driveline technology began over fifty years ago, when we established the business based on a simple, practical, yet elegant philosophy: Analyse the client’s needs, define the problem, then deliver the best possible solution by looking beyond the obvious. This thinking has taken us from a humble engineering background to be the preferred source of universal joints nationwide. Today, we are also located in Australia. Our alliances with strategically selected international suppliers allow us to offer an inventory of more than 2,400 components across categories as diverse as industrial and marine to heavy transport and off-road vehicles. And since time is money, and downtime is even more money, instant access to parts can mean a big difference to your bottom line. Off-the-shelf components, however, are not always the best answer. In fact, sometimes they’re no answer at all. Which is why we have a team of in-house engineers and manufacturing plant that allows us to customise component blanks or standard parts to meet specific applications. For demanding situations where OEM driveshafts are not meeting the customer’s needs we’ll design and manufacture an entire driveline from scratch – that way clients enjoy optimal performance, whatever the challenge.

Our Vision…

Is to continually develop driveline technologies that meet your current and future needs to ensure long-term productivity.

” Don’t just take our word for it…see what our loyal clients are saying about Beattys Driveline Technologies”

“Beattys for us in one word is reliability. We can trust the product. As a 24/7 operation we can’t afford anything less”
“Special mention must go to the assistance we receive from the design staff & their knowledge when setting up difficult projects…also the manufacturing division for supplying OEM (or better than) quality products”
“Great service, recommend to anyone. Turnaround time second to none. Friendly team. Have gone out of their way many times for us at short notice”
“After completing sea trials our senior skipper for this vessel has delightfully reported that he’s never ever felt her run so smooth and quiet!! We are totally rapt with the outcome and applaud Beattys’ design and manufacturing team on their thorough, systematic approach to this project complemented by quality componentry and workmanship. I have no hesitation in recommending Beattys Driveline Technologies for your marine driveline requirements and look forward to working with them on many more future projects”
“I just want to say a quick thanks for the job we have just had done by you. We have extended the wheelbase to a new Freightliner Coronado and had to go from a single piece driveshaft to a two piece. Despite being 700kms away and doing everything over the phone, you managed to make it an easy process and delivered a perfect fitting driveshaft in no time.”

“We were having nagging, complex issues trying to correct and resolve vibration problems on a modified 1961 Chevrolet Impala driveshaft. After several repair and balancing attempts the problem only seemed to get worse. In determination to overcome this challenge we got in touch with the technical team at Beattys. They were keen to help and got on the case straight away, talking me through the various stages and areas to check in a very concise, professional manner. After following these instructions and running up the shaft I was thrilled and relieved to find that no further vibrations could be detected across the full rev range – just the result we were hoping for!”

Our Brands

Beattys Driveline Technologies presents a family of quality brands covering a diverse range of vehicle & industrial solutions – delivered with market leading service and support. Our company tagline below defines our brand philosophy and direction:

                                  Optimal Performance Whatever the Challenge

Turret_Componentry_SolidWhi (1)

Our alliances with highly reputable, international component manufacturers gives you access to parts with almost immediate availability.

Better still, our inventory is complemented by our Technology division’s manufacturing plant that can modify or completely customise component blanks or standard parts.

Little wonder then that Turret Componentry is relied on across the country by industry sectors such as transport, off-highway and marine.

It’s not enough to meet today’s needs. Our solutions are designed and manufactured to keep pace with the demands of the future as well.

Our engineering team are regularly in contact with maintenance engineers and key personnel from industry leading organisations to stay ahead of industry challenges.

Special projects are handled seamlessly in-house with first-rate machining, assembly and balancing. Our resources that include automated rotational welders and dynamic balancers cater for all sizes of drivelines.


When an impeller, fan, rotor or armature is out of balance or vibrating its productivity is restricted. If left unattended this can result in costly damage and downtime with your rotational equipment.

Our facilities include four dynamic balancers capable of working on articles over four metres in diameter and ten tonne in weight.

Vibration analysis identifies areas for correction and adjustments are made for the operating speed to ensure the vibration has been eliminated. We also offer mobile balancing services to meet your on-site requirements.

Turret Onboard Energy

Essentially the products and solutions we offer through this range utilizes your vehicle or machine’s existing engine or hydraulic power source (ENERGY) to run compressors, generators, pumps and other equipment so your on-site work can be carried out in the most efficient way, while also being safer and costing less to maintain. ‘ONBOARD’ means we build or fit this auxiliary equipment directly on to your vehicle or machine without reducing any load space, towing capacity or power output. This means your essential power equipment is always with you and ready for work wherever you go.

Turret Filtration
Turret Filtration

For Beattys Driveline Technologies to become your preferred filter supply partner we knew no second rate product would do.
