The company, usually known as Hamilton Jet, exports more than 98% of its products. In 2009 TechNZ, part of the government-funded Foundation for Research, Science and Technology, invested $40 million in research and development by new and established companies. It also provided a global expert service, tracking down the best advisers for companies needing assistance.
