These include craftsmen cabinet makers, machinists and joiners, estimators and quantity surveyors, designers and CAD operators, planners and production managers, through to installers and project managers.

 
THE GREENMOUNT STORY

Graham Russell bought Greenmount in 1986, and quickly grew the business from 8 staff in a small factory, to an enterprise with over 45 employees in a 56,000 square feet factory building. Greenmount had all the modern machinery, specialised equipment and talent required to undertake large scale projects and 28 years of experience to back it up. 

THE ESPIES STORY

Espies began trading in the 1950's when William Espie started W.B. Espies & Sons. After being bought by Gary Glogoski and Dave Booth, the company quickly outgrew its premise and relocated to 40,00sqft facilities in East Tamaki. From a strong joinery base, Espies had its own building, installation, and project management teams to deliver the best service to their client base.
