Back in 1993, Martin and Karen Stratford bought a Canvas/PVC business in Nelson. Being an innovative couple, they were looking for something different to make with the manufacturing plant.
“A friend happened to ask Martin to make some inflatable play equipment for his commercial pool”, Karen says. “Martin then created our first model “The Hurdles Fun Run” – and so our niche product was born.”
Aflex inflatable products are in 18+ countries across five continents and are enjoyed by thousands of people every single day. We are the leading supplier of commercial pool inflatables and Waterparks in New Zealand and Australia, and are a popular choice in the USA, Canada, the UK, the Pacific and beyond!
With a love for innovation and a creative mind, Martin has been designing an extensive range of products for different environments including inflatables for commercial pools, for open water and for land. There have been amazing customised products manufactured too, like the 600 metre Guinness World Record slide for the Live More Awesome Charity in Auckland.
