Testimonials

Here’s what our customers are saying about us.

“We used to get our structural steel from elsewhere. But 2 – 3 years ago we started working with Petone Engineering and they now do it all. They also do specialist custom made engineering for us, such as balustrades, handrails and structural brackets. I just give Chris a call and he comes on site. We tell him what we are trying to achieve and he sorts it out. Their service is always good. Their estimating is good and if there are any problems they just fix it. Time frames are always tight but there’s no drama.”  

Jesse Dyson – DRD Builders

“When we called Petone Engineering we had an initial idea of what we were looking for but needed to nut out the methodology. We spoke with Chris on the Friday to get his advice on how to approach the job and to get started.

By the Monday Chris had the necessary equipment installed in the workshop and we were underway. When Aidan came on site, his precision and skill was simply impressive. We knew this type of work was a perfect fit with Petone Engineering and we were right. They are very good at dealing with things a little unusual and specialised. They are always good to deal with”.

Dean Bennett – Project Engineer CPB

We found the forward planning, attention to detail, and focus on our project to be exceptional. The team worked extremely well with other trades as well as being respectful and approachable by our clients when working in their space. I am more than happy to continue working with this professional engineering company and have recommended them to other clients and contractors as the ideal solution to any project.”

Barry Manning – Senior Project Manager at Kensway

“I have utilised the services of Petone Engineering for many years now & have always found Chris & his team to be very obliging when time is tight or where a design is lacking from the design engineers. Chris is very solutions focused and often identifies the required outcome quickly in discussion and then works out how it will be technically or structurally achieved without requiring any further input from the client.

We have asked Petone Engineering to assist in a number of projects including bracket making for over a thousand light fittings in the Terrace tunnel, special fittings to interface off shore components with New Zealand installation on roadside structures, temporary gantry crane systems to lift large heavy switchboards into a difficult accessed site from a road side loading zone.

Petone engineering was called to facilitate a job where others had not done so well. We were looking for high productivity, accuracy, and onsite expertise. The team demonstrated the ability to perform under pressure and provide solutions & other quick fixes, critical when working against the clock in a tunnel closure environment, ready for traffic to flow at 5.00 am in the morning.”

Richard Gibbens – Stones Electrical Contractors Ltd

“We use Petone Engineering for machining and fabrication on a regular basis, they are always here when we need them and always produce quality work.”
