ABOUT OEM AUDIO
We are 100% NZ owned and distribute throughout Australasia to selected resellers and direct to the public
Founding Director, Paul O’Connor started this business after trying to buy a reasonably-priced reversing camera for his own car and being very disappointed by the market offerings. After 10 prototypes, 500+ emails, five manufacturers and many late nights OEM now has several model ranges.
Our aim is to provide an all-in-one media unit that has all your current needs in one convenient well-built, well-designed, aesthetically pleasing unit. We offer many makes and models but all have the same essential features.
Our director Paul travels extensively to check on our suppliers and factories, which are also inspected to ensure no child labour. Our manufacturing partners are regularly audited by one one of the world’s leading Quality Inspections services, QIMA. We also regularly visit the latest trade shows for new ideas and developments.
We have extensive quality control checks both here, at manufacturing level and we personally ‘bench test’ each unit in New Zealand before it goes to the end user.
Software theft is an issue we are very conscious of – our mapping programs are all legal and licensed. We proudly represent the IGO / NNG mapping brand in NZ, we believe this to be the best mapping software available.Should you find someone copying our product please let us know and we will summon an overwhelming show of force to sort them out.

All our products are TUV tested to full New Zealand compliancy. and tested again here in NZ. OEM Audio also have a full custom built EVSE test facility here in our offices.
