Rugged Valley - Making It New Zealand - EPISODE 50

The 50th episode of the Making It New Zealand episode is a special one with Rugged Valley because its invention helps saves the lives of Kiwis both on and off New Zealand's roads. While many carseat covers interrupt the effective use of airbags in an accident, Rugged Valley New Zealand are designed and made with safety at the top of the list. From their Masterton warehouse and factory they produce carseat covers that ensure airbags work effectively in a collision. In this episode you'll get to see for the first time how automation has sped up Rugged Valley's manufacturing process and enabled small run customisations that Kiwi's are loving. Want to get your logo added to the headrest to customise your vehicle? No problem. Want to ensure you protect the value of your lease vehicle to maximise its trade in value? You're going to need to chat with Rugged Valley to add them to every seat in your fleet.
