We are your sheet metal problem solvers

Our Story

We are proudly Kiwi-owned and operated by the Taylor family. 

Discover the legacy of innovation and dedication that defines Our Story. Purchased in 1998 by Bruce and Delwyn Taylor, from former All Black Barry Ashworth, our journey began with a passion for excellence in metal fabrication and our roots run deep in Kiwi heritage.

In 2022, the reins of ownership passed to Chris and Hilary Taylor, marking a new chapter in our family's legacy. With Bruce and Delwyn's son Chris at the helm since 2010, our values remain steadfast. We cherish our relationships—with our team and our customers alike—and take pride in every endeavor, standing by our craftsmanship and integrity.

Under the leadership of Chris Taylor and guided by a commitment to quality and progress, we've transformed from humble beginnings with basic hand tools to a state-of-the-art facility in Auckland. Today, cutting-edge sheet metal fabrication technology drives our operations, ensuring precision and efficiency in all our work.

At Ashworth & Taylor Sheetmetals, the Taylor family's tradition of innovation, care, and unwavering commitment continues to shape who we are and everything we do.
