Spot On… 20 Years Later!
Finding an ageing plastic product with graphics intact after 20 years of use, in a harsh New Zealand climate, is truly outstanding… we think!
Back in the 90’s, stock feed enthusiasts Stallion Plastics developed the Spot-Sprayer unit, designed for farmers across New Zealand. A chunky but simple noxious weed-sprayer, Stallion’s desire was to ‘fit into’ a ‘market-gap’ during their ‘quiet-season’ and from this, a range of farm-bike mounted weed-sprayers were produced.
Since 1980, Stallion Plastics have become a renowned supplier of complex plastic products, especially in agricultural sector, with an emphasis on innovation from which also stemmed PSI Brand products.
Ex-Stallion Plastics Owner/Director, Steve Crawshaw has always been a ‘brand man’, “Without a logo on your products, if very difficult to add value or gain recognition”. Frustrated with the existing plastic branding methods at the time and a strong desire to develop an easy ‘peel & stick’ system, the PSI Brand INMOULD graphic system was borne.
Fast forward to 2018, on the outskirts of a small New Zealand town in Southland, Edendale, we spotted one of these classic Spot-Sprayers on the back of Simone Bouwmeester’s farm bike, graphics intact! Despite the cleaning, abrasion, noxious weed chemicals, harsh UV & mud-splatters we were still able to clearly distinguish the Spot-Sprayer 50L brand, along with the Litre Level graphic (Steve perhaps didn’t factor how ineffective the level indicator would actually be on the Opaque tank).
