Perry Steel Framing joins Perry Group

Perry Steel Framing was established in September 2021 to specialise in manufacturing LGS frames, trusses and beams, with the added service of pre assembling into volumetric hybrid pods where beneficial to the client.

It was with great excitement that they commissioned a world leading (made in NZ) Framecad cold roll forming machine at their Leamington facility. They are now well into manufacturing for their highly valued first customer Anthem Homes, who design and build outstanding homes in the Waikato. A key early decision has been to use Axxis Steel coil manufactured at NZ Steel in Auckland, rather than imported steel. With covid supply chain issues they are thankful to have such high quality product made right here.

Some of the advantages that builders enjoy when they utilise light gauge steel(LGS) framing in their construction projects rather than timber include:

  • Lighter than timber
  • More accurate than timber
  • Faster predictable delivery times
  • No toxic chemicals or mould
  • No shrinkage, twisting or cracking
  • Not affected by rain
  • Less waste of site than timber
  • 100% recyclable
  • Non combustible

Perry Steel Framing’s small team has a large vision to grow to be highly regarded as top of class specialists in modular LGS systems. LGS is a common building model adopted around the world and it is only recently becoming mainstream in NZ.

Currently the core team includes Zane Perrin, Zane Anderson, Zaine Young and Peter Botting.
