Our TeamOur Story

Division Engineering Company – Our Story

In 2005, Anthony Simpson started Division Engineering, bringing techniques from the UK to improve both the pace of projects and the end result. Over ten years later, Division Engineering is still family owned and run, delivering accurate, creative engineering solutions across the South Island, as well as building strengthening in Wellington and the South Island.

Today, our genuine passion for steel projects is still present in all we do. Whether you’ve already had plans drawn up, or need help with specifications, Division Engineering can step in at any stage, from planning and design to fabrication and installation. This ability to successfully complete even the most complex of projects comes down to our loyal, enthusiastic team. Investment in our staff through ongoing training and upskilling keeps them up to date with the latest health and safety regulations, engineering techniques and overall industry best practice.

Structural Engineering / Project Management Team

Anthony – Managing Director

After spending 16 years in the UK, gaining skills in structural and architectural engineering, Christchurch became home and Anthony realised there was a demand in New Zealand for contemporary architectural designs and fabrication. Since then, he has confidently grown an engineering company based on his core values of passion, purpose, and pride.

Helen – Operation / Project Manager

Helen joined Division Engineering, in 2014, after spending 25 years working with a successful franchise company in the UK & Europe. Whilst working full time, Helen completed degrees in operations management and business accounting. This has enabled her to bring valuable skills along to help in the growth and development of the business.

Leigh – Contracts Manager

Back in 2005, Leigh was one of Division’s first employees. As an experienced fabricator and steel worker with an eye for detail, Leigh quickly assumed the position of foreman and then soon after contract manager. With an ability to think outside the box, Leigh holds an extensive knowledge and skill base for structural and architectural engineering. His practical experience and a positive mindset make Leigh the ideal person to run your project.

Dan – Contracts Manager / Detailer

After completing his overseas work experience Dan is one of Division’s newest employees.

As a qualified tradesman coming from an architectural and engineering background with over 10 years’ experience Dan is the new ideas man, who is practically minded with attention to detail and a flair for design.
