About Us

In 2004 Stuart saw the need for direct “at source” extraction and hence his new company AtSource Extraction Systems was born. He knows when ordinary ventilation is suffi cient and when extraction is needed at the source. Nobody likes wearing masks, they’re hot, they’re stifl ing, they give workers a rash, there are now better ways! The flexibility of Nederman arms mean they can easily be placed just wherever they’re needed. Direct at-source extraction of dust and fumes at the point of emission is a widely recognised and accepted method of eliminating airborne contaminants from the workplace.

Stuart Chisnall and the team have been the New Zealand Distributor for Nederman since 2007. Over 60 years experience has helped Nederman to become a world leader in dust and smoke extraction, and exhaust fume extraction. With sales in more than 50 countries and its own distribution network, Nederman is the best-known brand in the industry on a global basis.

As Nederman's local distributor, we can help you design a working environment uniquely suited to your requirements – from single workplace installations to advanced system solutions. AtSource Extraction Systems, in conjunction with Nederman, provides support that encompasses every step – from consultation and design, to installation and after sales service.

We have achieved a number of certifications including ISO 14001, ISO 9001 as well as internationally recognised management and administration standards. Please let us know if you would like further details.
