New Zealand Steel has a proud history of growing and developing young men and women in trade related apprenticeships.

Each year New Zealand Steel partners with ETCO, and Competenz (ATNZ) to produce fantastic electricians, fitter/welders and riggers. We also celebrate the success of our apprentices each year with a wonderful awards night to recognise both the apprentices and the New Zealand Steel tradespersons who mentor the young men and woman.
