In 1972 the late Mr JC Schofield commenced development of the company's first, own designed, industrial hot water pressure cleaner, and began producing at its factory in Auckland. These units were produced for sale in New Zealand and Australia. After eight years of selling in the Australian market through agents Kerrick started to develop its branch network with the opening of the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane branches in 1980.
