Our story

Our story is uniquely kiwi with an ethos driven by high standards 

Founded by Lyndon Thompson, he and his team of three – all men of steel (so to speak) - started by building steel sheds to order before expanding into other areas of steel fabrication and then into small farm sheds. The company continued to experience steady growth due to its growing reputation for reliability and workmanship and in 2002 Lyndon’s sons Craig and Vaughan took over the day-to-day running of the business.

Lyndon’s daughter Michelle joined the family business in 2006, helping build the business into a major employer in Canterbury, South Canterbury and North Otago with now over 100 fulltime staff offering design to fabrication, and construction to delivery.

In 2011, Thompson opened an office in Christchurch, to not only support a high level of construction work in the region following the devastating series of Christchurch earthquakes, but also due to natural expansion of the business generated by increased demand.

The same strong work ethic and high level of integrity hold as true today as what they did in 1979 and will continue to remain so for generations to come.
