A combination of knowledge and experience, we strive to be the best in the business. This has seen VIP Steel continue to grow and be a successful steel manufacturer in the South Island.


We have over 100 employees, not including our full time contractors, throughout our business and we pride ourselves on our positive workplace culture and training systems. We take great pride in seeing our team develop and learn. Because of these reasons we have a very low staff turnover.


We use a 3D Cad programme for the design, we then use an advanced software to build our material lists to generate purchase orders which optimises the process. This programme enables us to zone and phase the build process. We have the latest structural steel fabrication processing equipment available.


Send us your plans to quote, we’ll organise detailing and put your plans into production. We can arrange delivery to any job site anywhere in the South Island! 100% completed in-house!
