Opening Up. Fencing Off. Marching On.

The Urban Group story.

The results of our work are found around and within some of the most innovative build projects throughout New Zealand. These results, be it keeping out or inviting in, safeguarding or streamlining, are at once stylish, sophisticated and ultimately enduring.

Our services cover design, engineering, fabrication and project management. Innovative and efficient in our approach, we provide final results that run the full range, from a single residential gate to large-scale architectural façades.

It’s been a rewarding journey for our company. We’ve got here thanks to a service mindset that accepts nothing less than consummate professionalism from our team and complete satisfaction from our industry partners and clients.

Our purpose-built fabrication facility and powder-coating plant allow us to control quality each step of the process and deliver fast lead times. It’s backed by a solutions-focused service mindset.

We know our reputation is crucial to the next thirty years of business, and that to continue as one of the most trusted names in the industry requires a professional focus every working hour of every day.

That’s why we like to work with customers throughout the entire lifecycle of a project. Whether it is residential or commercial projects, this full-service approach is what sets us apart.

No barriers to success

Our History

From the start our focus was always on quality workmanship, and it soon became clear we could offer customers a better solution through the use of aluminium. Delivering faster lead times, easier transport and handling and long-lasting powder-coated finishes, the decision to switch to aluminium was an easy one.

Employing a team of designers and project managers to work alongside the engineers, we soon launched our aluminium manufacturing know-how to the commercial sector.

In the early 2000s we emerged as one of the country’s leading aluminium fabricators following the shift from steel to aluminium fabrication. In 2011, with our company growing fast, we opened a purpose-built factory and powder-coating plant in Levin. We’ve experienced progressive growth ever since.

Today, the same principles of quality and customer service remains at the heart of what we do. With a strong focus on innovation and customised fabrication, Urban Group continually wins tenders for challenging commercial projects, large-scale civil infrastructure and bespoke architectural enhancements.

As a family-owned business now in its third generation our commitment to customer service is the foundation on which we continue to build.

Commercial Capability

We are one of the few aluminium fabrication services in New Zealand to offer a concept-to-completion service. Success lies in our ability to proactively partner with leading suppliers and contractors to manage all aspects of fabrication and installation. It also lies in our ability to deliver technical know-how, manufacturing capability and cost efficiency from under one roof.

We manage all processes in-house, enabling us to strictly monitor quality and deliver fast lead times. Life is easier for our customers when they only have to deal with one supplier. With this capability we are proud to often exceed the expectations of our customers with the scope of our services.

Committed to creating projects that will stand the test of time, we have delivered customised solutions across a broad range of sectors from healthcare providers, government buildings and high-rise residential projects. We are proud of our track record, and continue to work with New Zealand’s largest contractors as repeat clients.

  • Builders and large construction companies

Testimonials

Urban Group have been a fantastic business partner over the years, manufacturing a lot of custom-designed gates, and in one-off colours - such as safety yellow for the security gates at NZ Steel Mill. They always achieve a top result, and their outgoing team are a great support to my business.
