Based in Whakatane in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. Progressive Engineering Ltd was established in 1966. as a plant maintenance provider and general engineering works. Now in its 5th decade of operation, the company still provides the same high quality integrity based service that it was founded on.
Although industrial maintenance remains a major part of our business, the diverse range of skills and knowledge accumulated through our maintenance activities have enabled the company to grow into a highly capable fabrication facility.
Progressive Engineering is about providing a quality service to all customers, this relies upon strict adherence to customer requirements and company quality systems.
It is the companies firm belief that systems and procedures must be backed by sound management practice and full staff participation.
With these beliefs firmly entrenched within the company we are ensuring the advance of a quality system and customer satisfaction well into the future.
How are we ensuring that the Quality continues?
- A trained/skilled workforce
- Continuous improvement
- Multi-level communication
- Customer focus
- An attitude of do it once, do it right
Our people are results driven. We have a committed team of experienced project managers and supervisors, with specialist skills in 3D design and FEA, welding inspection and NDT, inspection and overhaul of rotating equipment, heavy machining, construction supervision and precision fitting and welding.
We also have a wider team of up to sixty technical staff that assist us on our larger shut and project work. They complement our core skill set, by bringing fitting, welding, rigging, machining, precision fitting and pressure welding trades as required.
With our job cost estimating and management processes, our customers can see where every dollar is spent on their projects – how many other companies provide that level of transparency? This transparency gives our customers and the Hutec team, the ability to prioritise work and adhere to budgets at short notice.
End to end management of your projects. Everything we do involves careful forward planning to minimise risk, maximise efficiencies and achieve the best possible result for any project.
And we will do it safely – our Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality (HSEQ) plans are developed specifically for each project or shut down – talk to some of our customers and they’ll tell you, the calibre of these plans is another thing separates us from the pack.
We tell it how it is. We work closely with our customers to ensure that we deliver the scope they need, and If scope changes, either as planned or emergent, we offer timely and innovative solutions to keep costs down. We provide regular formal and informal updates on project or shut progress against planned and tailor our communications to customers’ individual needs.
