Longveld was founded by Pam and Les Roa in 1992 with little more than a toolbox, a welder and some great trade skills, to provide stainless steel site installation services to the dairy sector in Australasia. We led a number of site-based teams carrying out projects in New Zealand, Singapore and Indonesia, and by the end of the 90’s our customers were asking us to apply our high level of quality, and attention to detail, to the fabrication of stainless steel primary processing equipment.

We opened a fabrication facility at our current site in Hamilton in April 1999, and have continued to expand and refine our capability, particularly in our project engineering and design team.

The integrity of the supply chain that delivers food from pasture to plate is a key driver for us and our purpose is to help our customers deliver global food safety through the quality of our engineering work.

The values of courage, respect and wholeheartedness remain at the core of our culture and we are very proud of our ability to form intimate yet professional relationships with our customers, suppliers, team and community.

We put the health and safety of our team first, and the health and safety of those who interact with our workplace. We work hard to monitor what matters and our team’s wellbeing is central to this.

Our practical and innovative minds, clarity of thinking, and professionalism will confidently support our customers into the future.
