Introducing Industrials

Introducing Industrials — After a long time apart, we are reuniting with our beloved industrial machine range. So whether you are looking for an upgrade from your domestic machine or you are in need of a more specialised machine for your business, we can find the perfect match for you! 

Back in the day (during the 1980s) Bruce Morgan began the Mercury Sewing Brand by importing industrial sewing machines into New Zealand. It wasn't until 2002 that he started to introduce a domestic range of sewing machines to the company. So it feels great to be going back to our roots. 

Current machines available: 

Singer Industrial Plain Sewing Machine - Heavy 

Singer Direct Drive 4 Thread Overlocker

Zoje Portable Blind Hemmer

Zoje Plain Sewing Machine

Singer Industrial Plain Sewing Machine with Auto Thread Trimmer

Brother Automatic Plain Sewing Machine - Direct Drive

If you are looking for something more specific that isn't featured on this list, please let us know and we can look into it for you. 

Setting Up Your Machine

A crucial part of most industrial sewing systems is the table, into which the machine must be inserted before it can be used. Your industrial machine will arrive with the table assembled and all wiring and testing complete. All that you will need to do is insert the head (i.e. the actual machine) into the table and plug it in.

Please be aware that industrial sewing machines are solid, heavy objects, and you will need at least two people to insert the machine head into the table, as it requires tipping and positioning the head of the machine onto the hinges which are on an awkward angle within the table.

If you need any clarification on this please contact us; we are happy to explain the process further.


Your purchased machine can either be delivered directly to your home or premises, or to The Sewing Depot store in Petone. For this reason the "Pick Up" option for industrial machines still requires payment of a Delivery fee, as most of our stock is held in Auckland.

If you choose to have your machine delivered to our store in Petone you also have the option of an introductory demonstration with one of our staff members. We have several demonstration models on site, but due to the boutique nature of our little shop there is limited space to house all of the industrial machines we sell. 

When it comes to taking your machine away, the average size of the machine tables are 120cm wide by 55cm deep, and around 75cm high (although the height is adjustable). You will need to have access to a vehicle that will accommodate those measurements, although our staff are happy to remove the table legs ready for transport if required.

If you would like to avoid the hassle of transporting your own new industrial machine but would still like an in-store demonstration, this may be possible to do using our in-store machines. To find out more please get in touch via the options on our Contact page.
