At Alted, we believe in bringing ideas to reality.

We specialise in structural steel fabrication and installation for homes and small commercial projects, from our beachside base in Taiura, servicing the Coromandel, Waikato.

July 2023 has seen a change of ownership for Tairua Steelcraft, and with it comes a fresh take and a new identity - Alted Engineering. The skill and expertise of Craig will remain within the business, and are now joined by owner and mechanical design engineer Bennet Gage-Brown. 

Coupled with Bennet's 20+ years in heavy transport and machine design, our team can deliver fit-for-purpose design services with 3D SOLIDWORKS modeling software.

We believe in bringing ideas to reality. That is the Alted way, and it's what you'll experience when you work with our team.

Fit for purpose

We define the problem and think about the end use. We deliver solutions that not only look good, but perform beyond your expectations.  

Fresh take

We bring a fresh take to engineering, blending traditional processes with forward-thinking. We approach problems from a different perspective, and pay attention to the finishing touches. 

Finish it

We get things done. We commit to seeing projects through to the end. We love making cool products, and seeing them do what we said they would do.
