AEC was originally founded in 1875 initially providing general engineering services for the local rural sector. The company has since grown into a full-service engineering firm, serving large clients throughout New Zealand and the world.

Our Work

With a reputation for delivering on large, challenging projects within the stipulated timeframes and budgets, the majority of our work today is in steel fabrication for substations, hydro dams and wind farms throughout New Zealand.
