It's A Dog's Life

Things have been moving and shaking here at the Metalworks workshop recently!
Our prototype dog (pictured below) has been a busy, busy boy. His full time occupation as a top model for d-fa dog equipment recently saw him cavorting in the good ole US of A, showing off the latest in d-fa developments.

Upon his return to New Zealand soil, he has been featured in the line ads of the Upper Clutha Messenger - "Spot The Dog" (if you could through all the fog recently!)

Now he would like to announce an expansion to his brood! Coming soon, Metalworks will house several new doggequins, which will help our prototype in representing the d-fa line. Stay tuned for an update on these fresh new faces - we will bring you pictures as they come to hand!

Stainless Steel Menu Stand

Metalworks and DB Breweries have been collaborating on a joint venture recently. Ernie's brief was to design a functional menu stand distinctive enough to reflect several different brands.
The results: Monteiths, Tui, and Heineken branded stands in Stainless Steel or Rustic Style with our latest stand going to the newly opened Goode Brothers Bar in Botany Town Centre, Auckland.

The picture show a sample of one of the basic stands, prior to branding. Comes with "Flip Top Lid" (just like the Reach Toothbrush!) to easily fit the menu behind the glass and sturdy castors for easy relocation of the stand.

New Rack Card

As I heard someone say the other day, "a recession is the best time to market your business". Well we must be ahead of our time (this week!) as we have just launched our new rack card.

Available now for viewing in several local businesses, and also available from our workshop/gallery here at 54 Ballantyne Road, it gives an overview of just some of the services we offer - from art, to structural, to lighting, to aviation.
We quite often get asked "Metalworks, so what do you do?" Well now you know!
