About PotBlack NZ
After initially importing many hundreds of coin operated pool tables into New Zealand for its own operations in the early 90's PotBlack NZ made the choice to establish a manufacturing facility in this country to better control quality and to be more adaptable in our diverse marketplace.
Since that beginning PotBlack NZ and its qualified Staff have manufactured & supplied Pool tables & Services to hospitality venues throughout New Zealand, expanding recently to include Pool tables for Home use, Clubs, Businesses and Tournament Play, along with an increasing range of accessory items.
With PotBlack tables located everywhere from Cape Reinga to Bluff, providing a proficient backup service created an opportunity for PotBlack to align with independent operators throughout the Country capable of delivering professional services and it is anticipated that these relationships will strengthen further to the real benefit of the sport.
Not only is PotBlack our registered trademark, we chose the branding because we feel it truly epitomises the strength of the sport and also defines the possibilities and potential of a recreational sport we as a business aspire to deliver. It is reputed that "Pot Black" the BBC television program of the 70's was developed initially to utilize new colour TV technology and was at one point the UK's 2nd most popular weekly TV program, and when ABC picked up the programme the exposure the sport created a boom for snooker and related cuesports here in New Zealand.
Our range of pool tables are largely manufactured by PotBlack here in New Zealand utilizing production techiques to keep costs to a minimum. But then personalising the product at the finishing stages allowing a degree of individualisation which we are happy to extend further where practical. Quality materials are sourced locally where available but we still use industry recognised quality materials by importing Italian slate and English Hainsworth cloth.
