About Us

From humble beginnings in 2001…

...working from a home garage in Henderson fabricating aluminium ramps, we’ve grown and diversified. Still West Auckland based, proud to support local businesses and with our staff also locals, we have expanded our capabilities to include full sheet metal and light engineering facilities from our Ranui premises. Our focus is on providing quality workmanship and versatile solutions to meet your requirements.   


John.JPGJohn Bloemendal, Managing Director, gained his Trade and Advanced Trade Certificates in Sheet Metal Engineering back in the days before computers and fancy calculators, so you can be sure he knows his stuff. (He’s also a bit of a perfectionist, which isn’t a bad thing in this job!) He has over 30 years’ experience in the trade, including management positions with responsibilities for HR, Health & Safety, quality control, and supervision of up to 200 staff. He worked for Mercer Stainless and Alloy Yachts prior to starting his own business with his wife, Dianne. In his spare time he races his Fraser sports car and plays the saxophone.

Maria.JPGMaria is our office Manager. With a ‘no nonsense’ administrative background and a charming accent, she keeps us all in order, makes sure everything is running smoothly, and that the customers are satisfied. Maria has been with us since 2011. Originally from Uruguay, she has been living in New Zealand for the past 12 years. For the past 2 years, Brooke has been helping Maria in the office and she'll be the voice you hear on the phone. 

Thomas, Doug, Matthew, Josh and Zeph are the guys you’ll see in the workshop. Thomas, our Workshop Manager, joined us straight from school and has been with us for several years. He has an eye for detail and likes to get things right first time; Doug has many years’ experience in fabrication and associated industries, including running his own business and Matthew it's our apprentice. Zeph and Josh mainly work with our associated business, Rampworx Ltd, which specialises in ramps and safe access solutions.
