Hayes Fencing Tools were first developed in 1895 by a young Ernest Hayes, a pioneering engineer eager to help turn New Zealand’s wilderness back country into productive land.
Initially produced by hand, Hayes’ simple tools began to develop a solid reputation and in 1902 established the company that would proudly bear his name.
Now over 100 years on, with their longstanding reputation for rugged performance, Hayes remains the preferred brand for professional fencers around the world.
Tru-Test Group acquired Hayes’ in 2001 and expanded the range of fence tools to include a reliable, hard wearing range of farm gates.

“My team’s tools get a hard time yet they must continue to perform. Hayes is definitely my preferred brand”
