About Fero

Fero is an innovative New Zealand company offering integrated wire technology solutions, component supply & production solutions for manufacturers in the tech sector.

FERO was born out of two companies, TradeTech established in 1987, and Wire Solutions formed in 2002. Fero was the group name created to bring together TradeTech and Wire Solutions. Since that time TradeTech has been sold and now Fero focuses solely on providing manufacturing solutions for the tech sector.

 

WHAT’S IN A NAME

The name Fero is derived from the Latin phrase “In Caelum Fero” which, loosely translated, means “a person who leaves a lasting impression when others meet them for the first time.” It can also mean, “using a hammer and a chisel to make a mark in metal”. We’ve taken these definitions and with a bit of poetic license come up with our company motto…

In Caelum Fero – we make our mark.
