Daytech Engineering the story so far. Daytech Engineering a small family business situated on Lincoln Rd. in Masterton has come a long way since it’s early beginnings 10 years ago when its business took place out of an implement shed at the back of a farmhouse in Gladstone. Since those early days Stuart Day and his business partner (and wife) Jill have grown the business into a thriving General Engineering workshop which employs 6 additional full-time staff. The company began working on specialist products such as woolpresses and enjoyed success which went some ways to establish and promote a good reputation for innovative and quality product design. In more recent times this innovation has spread to other fields and areas such as stock handling and feed-out equipment.
The company is always looking for a challenge and has on various occasions taken on the design and commissioning of one-off customer specific plant, including recently when the already popular sheep conveyor was modified to handle commercial lettuces for cleansing and selection. Daytech has been continually improving its services and products intensively over the past 2 years with a view to being able to provide complete mechanical Engineering coverage to their customers in the Wairarapa and also New Zealand wide.
Research and Development plays a large part in the yearly budget and follow up work with customers to gauge feedback is important to the company. Aware of the fact that a lot of the business in the Wairarapa is centred around the Agricultural sector the company has invested on equipment and transport to make it possible to provide a full range of services at the client site, be it farm or factory. Realising that such work can be very weather dependant or indeed stock dependant Daytech will do its utmost to work in with the customer schedules.
Although Daytech is very proud of its innovative product range and New Zealand wide coverage with sales from Dargaville to Invercargill its is still very much focused on the fact that the bread and butter work that maintains the company from week to week is supplied by the general engineering jobs provided from the drop-in customers, the man or woman in the street. The broken pieces can range from a chair, an unwarranted trailor to a tractor grader blade and we guarantee to have a go at repairing them or at least give an honest opinion or recommendation. Above all the main focus at Daytech is on providing quality service and workmanship.
