NZ agent for the range of PREMIUM AFN 4x4 accessories:
Full looped bullbars
Rear step bars
Aluminium underbody protection plates
AFN founded its Portugal operation in 1995 to meet the need to supply vehicle protection equipment for the military and the United Nations. In more recent times it has realised the potential to grow and expand its market and is now one of the most well-equipped companies dedicated to the production and commercialisation of protection accessories for off-road vehicles.
At AFN we approach things differently, we take into consideration the natural lines of the vehicle and give the vehicle a look and feel that it so rightly deserves – No outdated, traditional ‘one style’ fits all products here! The four-wheel drive market has been crying out for something different and new, and as such AFN has seen this gap in the marketplace.
Anyone can make a Bullbar but not many apply the design philosophy that we do. A well-designed bar is a fine balance between strength, overhung weight and aesthetics and at AFN we put a lot of effort into getting this balance correct.
AFN 4×4 Australia has worked tirelessly with AFN Portugal to produce a range of products that is particularly suited to the Australian market and therefore New Zealand. Every AFN bullbar is tested to meet all ADR, airbag and Australian Standards requirements. This same approach is carried through to our rear bars, side steps, guard bars and our unique aluminium underbody protection plates.
AFN knows that getting to the front takes a lot of investment, and as such it is important to ensure the latest manufacturing techniques are utilised. From full 3D vehicle scanning to complex tooling, AFN is dedicated to ensuring it stay aligned with the demands of modern vehicle manufacturing techniques.
AFN employs Automotive engineers trained in Europe that understand modern vehicle safety and design elements. These together with a desire to combine aesthetics with functionality has resulted in a product range that will ultimately change the way front and rear protection systems are seen, especially in the New Zealand market.
