Sir Edmund Hillary's Hut Restoration

Nexus Performance Foams are delighted to provide material support to the talented AHT restoration team, restoring Sir Edmund Hillary's 1957 Hut A, otherwise known as the TAE (Trans Antarctic Expedition) hut.

Thanks to generous donations from around the world, sponsors and a public fundraising campaign following the epic tractor ride from Piha to Aoraki Mt Cook, the AHT restoration team have begun the iconic repair job of Hut A in time for the historic 60th Anniversary of Sir Ed's South Pole expedition on 20 January 2017.
