Nulca NZ represents the utility location industry in New Zealand. It is an organisation created to support and grow the capabilities of individuals and organisations involved in locating, tracing and mapping underground services.
Nulca is a contraction of National Utility Locating Contractors Association, an organisation originally formed in the United States in 1994. Australia also established a similarly named association in 2004.
In choosing to adopt Nulca as our name we join an international collective of people dedicated to building better and stronger national and global utility locating industries.
While the US and Australian associations are still sometimes referred to by their full name, they are more commonly now known just as Nulca. The full name is a bit of a mouthful to get out so the New Zealand association will simply be known as Nulca New Zealand or Nulca NZ.
