Pacific Helmets

Pacific Helmets

Rows of orange helmets line tables at Pacific Helmets. The business was established in Whanganui in 1980 and now specialises in safety helmets for emergency services – fire, ambulance and police. Over 90% of its sales are outside New Zealand; these helmets are ‘headed’ for Australia.
