About Us

QUEENSTOWN ENGINEERING  LTD

Queenstown Engineering was first established in 2003 as a one-man operation.  The company had a change of ownership in 2006 and again in May 2009.

The current directors of Queenstown Engineering 2009 Limited are Allan Foote and Justin Taylor.  Together,  Allan and Justin have grown the business through an increased focus on 'Delivering beyond expectation'.      

Queenstown Engineering continues   to   be   one   of the major engineering companies servicing the construction industry in Central Otago today.

We are based in Queenstown and employ 14-17 full-time staff.  We are also Site Safe NZ qualified and actively support Apprentice Training New Zealand ATNZ, and Competenz who are encouraging young New Zealanders to become qualified tradespeople.

Queenstown Engineering’s most significant point of difference is our Steel Fabrication Certification (SFC) ISO 3834.   This ensures we have proven knowledge, understanding and competence in manufacturing structural steel according to international best practice.  We are the only certified steel fabricator in the Wakatipu basin and Central Lakes district.

In 2013, Queenstown Engineering custom-built and moved into its new engineering workshop on Glenda Drive (some 600 + square metres) complete with a 3T overhead gantry crane and abrasive blasting and galvanising facilities.

A natural addition to the business was the opening in 2015 of the Queenstown Engineering Bolt Store – a showroom with a full range of EDL Fasteners nuts, bolts, and screws available to the public and local trades for purchase.

"Cook Brothers Construction has used Queenstown Engineering for numerous projects - from small projects to multimillion dollar developments. Queenstown Engineering delivers a great service and product every time and that is why we keep using them.

QUEENSTOWN ENGINEERING  LTD

"Queenstown Engineering has been a strong support to our ever-changing environment and needs at The Remarkables Shi Area for the last 10 years at least! From their original site in Queenstown where space was always compromised they never failed to deliver either on fabrication of product or assistance on site at The Remarkables. Now in bigger premises with more work rolling through the business Allan, Justin, Jase and the team still provide outstanding service and commitment to our cause on a regular basis. May it long continue!"
