About Us

We are sheet metal problem solvers

Innovative thinking, unparalleled experience and the latest in metal fabrication technology combine at Ashworth and Taylor to deliver full custom solutions for any idea or project.

Working with sheet metal requires precision. All details must be correct, and workmanship must be exact to provide results that are both watertight and aesthetically pleasing.

From initial designs through to engineering fabricated and machined metal products, our highly-skilled team delivers high-quality solutions for a diverse range of clientele, on time and on budget.

High-tech Manufacturing Plant

Our sheet metal facility in Auckland can turn over jobs quickly and accurately in mixed-quantity runs.

Computer numerical control (CNC) automation gives us the ability to take on a wide range of work in any direction.

The plant is set up to work with a variety of industries, including ‘clean industries’ such as food, health, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, dairy, fisheries and meat producers that require high-grade stainless-steel surfaces.


Our Story

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

In 1998, Bruce and Delwyn Taylor procured the business from former All Black Barry Ashworth. 

The business has developed dramatically over the years as basic hand tools used in the early days have steadily been replaced by modern technology. State-of-the-art sheet metal fabrication technology and machinery is now used throughout our busy Auckland plant.

Bruce and Delwyn's son Chris joined the business in 2010 and family values continue to run strong; we genuinely care about our people and our customers, and proudly stand by everything we do.
