Company founder John Down speaking to clients and staff at the opening of ENI Engineering’s new Christchurch premises.
Christchurch firm ENI Engineering has relaunched one which Founder John Down says was a strategic move the company has been working towards for some time.
“We are definitely geared up for the new opportunities being presented by the rebuild of Christchurch and Canterbury,” Down says.
“As yet we don’t know what all of those opportunities will be, but we are well equipped and positioned to provide a high level of service and rapid turnaround to meet whatever demand comes our way.”
Growth over the last five years has been an impressive 60% in terms of turnover, achieved by using lean manufacturing methods and increasing capability, while staff numbers remained steady.
ENI’s traditional business of sheet metal fabrication and finishing of a range of metal products including low emission log burners was recently boosted by a new contract with Eaton and Telecom’s Chorus will see ENI manufacturing roadside boxes for the Ultra Fast Broadband rollout throughout New Zealand.
The company currently has 52 staff, making it one of the largest sheet metal fabrication companies in Christchurch, with further growth on the horizon expected to support the ongoing city rebuild process.
The company also has a longstanding contract to supply all roadside steelwork for the Orion network, as well as transformer housings, boundary boxes and internal switch gear for substations on new subdivisions.
