Engineering & Design

With teams based in Nelson and Auckland we are able to provide cost effective ‘fit for purpose’ technological solutions to meet our client’s process and production requirements. Our collaborative approach ensures all our clients are included in the decision making process at every stage of the project. This close partnership produces the best design solution and leads to faster implementation of technology solutions at an optimal cost.



With two fabrication workshops in New Zealand as well as overseas fabrication partners, we have significant fabrication capabilities and workshop facilities allowing for complete vertical integration from raw material through to final calibration.
