Sir Angus Tait, the New Zealand electronics pioneer and founder of Tait Electronics, has died at the age of 88.
Sir Angus founded Tait Electronics in 1969, with a second mortgage on his house, after a previous business went broke in 1967. Since then it has grown to employ 750 people with revenues of around $170 million. He was a critic of the free market "Rogernomics" policies of the 1990s.
He is survived by his wife, Hazel, three children and a grandchild.
