Owner Nathan Hitchcock has worked within the dairy industry, in various roles, since 1998 where he started work for Eric Young Farm Services; a local Waikato Milking Services Dealership, where he learnt his trade and studied Agricultural Engineering via Massey University. In 2003 he ventured to the UK for his OE. To fund his travels he worked for Waikato Milking Systems, (WMS), installing milking plants throughout Wales, Scotland and England. While overseas, Waikato Milking Systems approached Nathan to establish a new dealership in the Inglewood, Taranaki area. So upon his return in 2005, Nathan opened Moa Milking and Pumping. After a successful relationship operating within Taranaki, Waikato Milking Systems presented Nathan with the opportunity to fit their rotary platforms for the lower North Island in 2009. This led to the introduction of Moa Rotary Platforms with Nathan securing the rights to install and service all of Waikato Milking System platforms for the entire North Island.
As a result in 2012 we opened a workshop in Matamata, Waikato; and is where the team who install and service Waikato Milking Systems Rotary Platforms base themselves.
In August 2013 there was a devastating fire that completely destroyed the Moa Milking & Pumping Inglewood premises which meant a complete rebuild was required.
