One of New Zealand’s leading steel fabricators, Stevensons Structural Engineers has been building in Aotearoa since 1897.
With decades of experience in designing, fabricating and erecting structural steel for commercial, industrial and domestic projects, Stevensons’ work is found throughout Aotearoa and the world. Steel manufactured in the Tokomaru workshop has featured in projects like the solid presence of ‘The Rock’ at Wellington International Airport which welcomes visitors to Aotearoa, and others as far away as Venezuela, Guam, Nauru and Australia.
Other notable projects include the Wellington Blown Away sign, the waterfront jump platform, the Sky Bridge for SkyCity in Auckland and the installation of Wind Turbines at the Te Rere Hau Wind Farm located on the Tararua Ranges bordering the Manawatū Region.
Stevensons’ head office has stood proudly on SH 57 in Tokomaru since the business was established 125 years ago, with a workshop in Palmerston North later added to the business. Just like their list of accomplishments, Stevensons site capabilities continue to grow.
The impressive fabrication shop is fully equipped to meet most fabrication requirements, with a 48m x 13m floor serviced by two overhead five tonne gantry cranes, and another 38m x 9.5m floor serviced by a one tonne gantry crane. A surface treatment facility is also available at the Tokomaru site in a 19.7m x 4.5m high x 5m wide grit blasting booth alongside a 30m x 11m paint-shop and large storage yard.
Stevensons is an integral part of the Tokomaru community, with some loyal employees boasting more than 40 years’ service each. Thirty riggers in nine teams are based out of their three production facilities, with ongoing business growth.
