Their NZ designed and manufactured machinery is custom made for clients in the mining, food processing, materials handling sectors to name a few. Employing a team of 500 staff, the company is doing exceedingly well and with ambitious growth plans, there is no better time to get on board.

Working out of the Christchurch workshop you will operate a mix of Manual & CNC milling machines and lathes to produce specified components parts to be fitted to both new pieces of machinery and existing plant. You will be working to tight tolerances and ensure all finished parts are checked before they’re dispatched. You will produce a mix of one-offs and propriety components.
