The business provides engineering services and products to a diverse range of industries throughout New Zealand, Australasia and the Americas.

WHAT OUR CLIENT'S SAY
Managing Director | AG Walter & Sons | Auckland
“We believe the Skate Table’s smart design and the high-quality manufacture has set a benchmark and reinforced our position in a very competitive industry. The Skate Table has unquestionably made a difference to our operation. Beforehand, the operation was limited to the time it took to extract the goods out of the container. Now the bottleneck lies with the availability of sufficient trucks to unload.”

MAINTENANCE SHUTDOWN KINLEITH PULP & PAPER MILL
“The quality of your company’s workmanship has proved to be first class. That is down to your own leadership and supervision, and to the quality of employees you have.”
“…I can tell you that 2 Pulp/BP was the only area across the entire mill that came in on time… the area was left in the best condition they have seen in over 15 years post any shut, and that is despite this being the largest number of work orders anyone can remember being executed… it is a real reflection of your professionalism.”

“Page Macrae Engineering has over 20 years’ experience with high tensile fabrication work specific to the forestry industry. This experience is invaluable to our products’ durability in harsh conditions… It’s the small things that Page Macrae Engineering do well… I guess with their experience they understand the product application and get to know the areas of importance where care must be taken – and this experience is crucial.”
Hydro-Mechanical Maintenance Specialist | Mercury
“I just wanted to say thank you for your support and responsiveness in assisting us with this Penstock Priming Valve and flange replacement at Maraetai 1. There has been a lot of focus on this as there was only a short timeframe to carry out the repair. Page Macrae Engineering again has proven to be a highly valued service provider and I sincerely appreciate it.”

PAGE MACRAE LOGLIFTERS
“We have been using Page Macrae Engineering Log Lifters for over 10 years, and don’t replace them, we just add to the number we have as our business grows. They last very well and get a lot of punishment without any damage – you certainly get your money’s worth out of them.”
