All About Metalspray Engineering Ltd

All About Metalspray Engineering LtdOriginal founder, John Shanks, saw an opportunity when he heard about a machine that sprayed metal to repair damaged parts. This was a truly unique innovation and after considerable research he imported the first Metalspraying machine into New Zealand and in 1958 went about forming Metalspray Engineering Ltd.

This forged a new niche in the local engineering industry, allowing for damaged or worn parts to be repaired at a fraction of their replacement cost, meaning this technology was quickly accepted by customers. That original machine has since been replaced with advanced metalspraying technology and the company is now able to spray most metals, as well as ceramics.

Metalspray grew quickly expanding its engineering sevices to include tool and die making, CNC milling, general engineering, gear cutting, special purpose machine building and maintenance engineering.

During its 50 plus years of business Metalspray has contiued with founder, John Shank's philosophy, with ongoing investment in plant and technology to best meet customers' requirements. The latest edition being a German “Spinner CNC Machining Centre”.

High-tech plant is not the only reason for Metalspray's success, and it is fortunate to have a team of highly skilled, committed and experienced staff who pride themselves on their high standard of work, for which Metalspray is well known.
