CSP Pacific has been the name known to most as the premium road safety products manufacturer and supplier in New Zealand for many years. Now, in conjunction with Australian Construction Products (ACP), its Australian counterpart and as part of the Barrier division of the Rocla group, CSP Pacific is still growing and changing. 

Dated 1997 this article, from the predecessor to Road Rave, features two team members that are still with CSP Pacific: Pita Eteru - who has been with CSP for 30 years and Metua Tepaki for 31 years.
