Steel com­pany looks for staff

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS - By CHE BAKER

Cromwell’s rep­u­ta­tion as a con­struc­tion hub has been given a boost with the town at­tract­ing the at­ten­tion of an ex­pand­ing steel com­pany. Euro Cor­po­ra­tion and Com­plete Re­in­forc­ing, which was in­volved in the con­struc­tion of the Forsyth Barr Sta­dium in Dunedin, is to set up in Hughes Cres and is look­ing to hire staff. The com­pany pro­duces steel and wire prod­ucts for use in the ru­ral and com­mer­cial con­struc­tion and opened in Auck­land 20 years ago. It has grown steadily into a medium-sized man­u­fac­turer, ex­porter, im­porter and dis­trib­u­tor and in 2011 ex­panded its op­er­a­tions into Christchurch. Op­er­a­tion man­ager Kelvin Bus­bridge said ‘‘the in­vest­ment in Cromwell was al­ways on the cards once we had Christchurch up and run­ning. We see Cen­tral and South­land as hav­ing great po­ten­tial for a com­pany like us.’’ It is thought more staff would be hired once a sales base was built, Mr Bus­bridge said. The Cromwell di­vi­sion op­er­a­tions man­ager Rick Guy­ton said he was on the hunt to take on the best peo­ple the re­gion has to of­fer to fill the three po­si­tions; a de­tailer, cut­ter ben­der and steel fixer. A pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and be­ing a quick learner were the at­tributes he was look­ing for.
