Established in 1987 by Sheet Metal engineers John East and Mike Owens, Prometal Industries started business in a leased workshop in Bromley, Christchurch and has gone from strength to strength. Mike and John remain at the helm of the company today as Directors and now have over 70 years of combined experience in sheet metal fabrication.
Early on in the company’s history, Prometal Industries was approached by Telecom (now Spark) to assist with the design and manufacture of seismic enclosures for the telecommunication industry. Such a reputation was developed with the project that it’s now a particular expertise that Prometal Industries provide.
John and Mike have seen a number of changes in their time. In 1992 they were ahead of their time, commissioning just the 2nd laser cutter in the South Island and one of the first in New Zealand. This was the first of many installations and upgrades which have all lead to company’s expertise and quality craftsmanship in sheet metal fabrication.The Christchurch Earthquakes
in 2011 seriously damaged the workshop, but strong commitment from Mike and John and the wider team
had the company up and running again within weeks before designing and building a purpose built facility which they moved to in 2013.
