Nick has 14 years engineering experience. He is a highly skilled fabricator and draftsman with polished skills in 3D and 2D modelling software.
After he left school and went straight into the engineering industry after completing a pre-trade course at the Otago Polytechnic. After completing his apprenticeship and serving his time at Farra Engineering he moved to Australia to broaden his skills and knowledge in stainless steel fabrication. He then moved back to Otago to complete a Mechanical Engineering diploma. This Qualification lead to a Project Management role. In his personal time Nick is always busy with his own engineering projects. He enjoys building and creating things which are outside of the norm. He can sometimes be found fly fishing on a back country river.
Cory McEachen started his sheet metal fabrication career in a small workshop in Mosgiel. A high percentage of his apprenticeship was spent at the local PPCS (Silver Fern Farms) meat processing plant where he was introduced to working within the food industry and the associated food grade requirements.
He then joined his fathers building company to learn a new trade in carpentry and worked on everything from new builds, new kitchens, new bathrooms and renovation work. After 6 years in the building industry local work started slowing down, prompting Cory to look at work back in the engineering sector. It was here he was involved in one of Dunedin’s major redevelopments with Speight’s brewery; fabricating their brewing vessels and being involved with on site pipe work.
