About Us

Our Story

Owners Ingo and Grit Schleuss came to New Zealand in 1999 and started “Company Branding Shop Ltd” in Levin as a two-man band, sub-leasing some factory floor space from one of the “big guns” in those times.

Today we have a modern showroom on the Main Highway in Levin and still offering all our services on side. Therefore we have total control from design to the finished product, employing local people.

We are committed to our core belief – Quality Customisation – and to deliver exceptional products and services to our community and beyond. 

A huge Thank You is owed to our community and to our dedicated staff for joining us on this amazing journey as we have grown, and we invite you to be part of the Kapinua story.

KAPI – stand for Kapiti, NUA – stands for Horowhenua

Kapiti and Horowhenua share a proud history in textile production. From the work of traditional Maori weavers, through the dominance of the flax trade, to established reputation for innovation and quality the area has today.

What we do

Our in-house services include embroidery, vinyl and transfer printing, and customised sublimated apparel under our trusted brand name KAPINUA.

Ingo’s saying is: “I can print everything as long as it is on fabric.” So ask us for any special requests you have.

The showroom is fully stocked with Uniform Fashion, Workwear and Team Wear apparel you can sample and try on. Make an impression that lasts.

Even after more than 20 years in the industry we still get our daily kick when we see our many happy customers. Get in contact with us today whether you own a business, are in a sports team or you just want to stand out from the crowd. Kapinua will take care of the complicated stuff so you can concentrate on what you are good at.
