"These are all quality players, who have bright futures and are an important part of the Chiefs programme," said Chiefs coach Dave Rennie.
A former star of Highlanders rugby, fullback Robbie Robinson said that the decision to move North had definitely paid off.
"I had some personal goals that I wanted to achieve and feel I am heading in the right direction and improving in the Chiefs environment," said Robinson.
Another electrifying prospect, Counties Manukau winger Tim Nanai Williams said the Chiefs had become more than just a rugby club to him, making it an easy decision to stay on.
"The Chiefs are one big family and family and loyalty are important to me," said 23-year-old Williams.
The contract extension will see Williams play a total of five seasons with the Chiefs.
Asaeli Tikoirotuma has also been impressive in his Super Rugby debut year, equaling a previous record - held by Sitiveni Sivivatu - of scoring four tries in one match, against the Blues.
Reflecting on his decision to re-sign Tikoirotuma said: "I love being part of the Chiefs. Super Rugby is just awesome and I'm really enjoying it."
