From Here to Here
We pride ourselves as the only manufacturer of 100% New Zealand Made Fencing Wire, but what does that really mean?
In late 2015 the first of the Ironsand feed steel billets began to arrive at our Otahuhu Mill in Auckland. These billets, unlike the previous scrap fed steel billets, were made from Ironsand steel at the New Zealand Steel Mill in Glenbrook. The pure virgin Ironsand feed was the next step in our wire making process providing an incredibly consistent steel input while retaining the ductility and tensile strengths we pride ourselves on.
Once on side the billets are rolled down to wire rod coils at our rolling mill which are then further processed at the wire mill on beach road. Processing includes descaling, cleaning and galvanizing with coils then 'payed off' in various coil sizes from our 25kg coils right up to much larger coils for manufacturing wire.
Once off our production lines, the coils are labeled, packaged and dispatched out to distributors and retailers nation wide.
