Trellis Otago - made to measure
Two years ago, Colin Turner went to buy some more of the strong durable trellis he needed to finish a job, only to find the business had closed and the owner retired.
Seeing and seizing an opportunity, he bought the equipment and leftover stock and has never regretted the decision.
He now finds himself receiving orders from all across Otago and Southland and can be in Queenstown one day, Owaka the next and Otautau the following day.
‘‘You might say there is strong demand,’’ said Colin, flicking through an ever increasing order book, putting it down to pick up the staple gun once more.
‘‘Farmers are finding it a quick wind break until shelter belts establish, others love the privacy the trellis gives them.’’
Each order is made to measure for the customer, there are no stock sizes and this is one of the things which sets Trellis Otago apart. ‘‘We work with the customer to give them just what they want, straight, vertical or square design, stainless steel or galvanised staples with a special diversion point to hold the timber tighter, stainless steels screws, rounded edged batons of quality H3 treated timber, a natural finish to allow the customer to stain it the way they want.
‘‘You might say our product is 99 percent Otago/Southland sourced.’’
