Meet Our Experienced Turbo Specialists
Our Managing Director
Lance began his time in the automotive industry in 1979 with an Automotive Engineering apprenticeship. In 1992 he shifted to Auckland with over a decades experience in heavy commercial and marine applications including several years spent as workshop foreman. Lance opened Alltech in early 1993, initially as a service only business. After some less than satisfactory experiences with local spare parts suppliers it became apparent to him that the way forward was to start importing and distributing himself. In the intervening years he has progressively added to the products and services that are provided to the industry, and introduced new international suppliers into the New Zealand market. When time allows, Lance can be found indulging in his other automotive passions. He has competed successfully for several years in Sprint Car racing at Auckland's Western Springs Speedway and Tauranga's Bay Park, and has for many years restored and maintained vintage motorbikes. Lance's personal philosophy is that his own business will benefit the most by bringing improvements to the diesel & turbo industry as a whole. As part of his commitment to the industry Lance is the chairman of the New Zealand branch of the Australasian Association of Diesel Specialists, and is leading various programmes associated with today's technical and environmental requirements.
