Who we are

We think every job is special and every customer is important.
If you give us a try we won't let you down.

Tarpaulin Makers is a family owned business based in Mt Maunganui. We’re a small operator focused on producing quality work. We make to measure for a wide range of industries and purposes.

The company started in 1989. Ten years later I joined the business as a 17 year old apprentice. 15 years, and lots of hard work later, the chance to buy the business came along. In 2014 I took the plunge and become the owner.

Today, we have a team of skilled staff and the business is growing steadily. We have introduced a mobile repair service and an online supplies service. We are continually finding ways to do things better and really appreciate feedback from our customers.
