Trel­lis Otago - made to mea­sure

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

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.’’

From high coun­try to coast, con­tact Colin for your re­quire­ments to­day.
