About Waimak Engineering

Stu McKay has been in the engineering trade since 1975 and has gained a reputation throughout Canterbury and further afield for the quality of his workmanship and his attention to detail.

Stu is a perfectionist and his motto is: “If it’s not right, it doesn’t leave the door.”

Most of the work is done by Stu himself and everything is thoroughly checked before it leaves the premises. All workmanship is guaranteed. Stu works from his workshop in Fernside, as well as working on-site for certain projects in Canterbury.

Because of the relatively small size of the business, Stu is able to keep his overheads low, which means he can pass on these savings to you in the form of realistic prices. Stu always strives to offer the best value for money.
