Welcome to Johnston, Dick & Associates Ltd (JDA)

New Zealand's Largest Independent Broadcasting Consultancy

The history of Johnston, Dick and Associates (JDA) is forever bound with the history of broadcasting and telecommunications in New Zealand. The company has grown from an original incorporation in 1973 and is now the largest independent broadcasting consultancy in New Zealand. Much of this growth has been driven by the company's continued central involvement in the creation and development of independent radio, television, and telecommunications on a nationwide scale. 

Understanding New Zealand's Broadcast and Communications Arena

New Zealand's rugged terrain and widespread population present special problems for radio and television coverage. JDA has always worked within the local environment, developing a detailed knowledge of the terrain, and a deep practical understanding of the special requirements it imposes to deliver national coverage. Overseas consultants on the other hand frequently have difficulties coming to grips with the vagaries of local topographical conditions.

Because JDA has been involved in private broadcasting since its arrival in New Zealand, we know virtually all of the major players in the field, including regulatory bodies. We have been part of broadcasting and telecommunications evolution here for decades. Our reputation represents a high level of credibility in an ever changing market.

Independent and Impartial

JDA is independent of any organisation providing equipment or installation and maintenance services to the broadcasting industry. We have no equipment agencies or supplier affiliations. This means we can negotiate equipment and service supply from all available sources to ensure the best possible prices and contracts for our client.
