In 1930, NZI's 3rd Manager Arthur Toplis also diversified into producing pottery. Toplis, a skilled potter, got Temuka Pottery going on a commercial scale with a contract to supply electric jugs, and later the Railways crockery. Arthur Toplis can take credit for New Zealand's much-loved brand Temuka Pottery.
