About Us

George Grant Engineering Limited (GGE) is one of New Zealand’s foremost Structural Steel specialists and a certified member of SCNZ (Steel Construction NZ).

Our Vision

To be recognised as New Zealand's premier specialist in structural steel, excelling in all aspects of steel construction.

Our Focus: “In Spec, On Time, Every Time.”

Steel—the better choice

The development of better protective coating systems makes steel the ideal material for engineers and architects looking for convenience, value and good aesthetic qualities.

At GGE, we continue to invest heavily in our staff, processes, technology, plant and machinery to enhance steel’s unique benefits and maintain our competitive offering.

In 2006, we moved to our own purpose-built factory, allowing us to improve the quality, volume and efficiency of our services.

In-House Expertise

Central to our ethos is the concept of ‘lean manufacturing’, which encompasses every aspect of our service offering, concentrating on quality and service by eliminating unnecessary cost and time wastage.

We currently employ around 70 staff and our highly skilled personnel have extensive experience delivering large scale structural steel projects to a range of clients.

GGE has a proud record of servicing the construction industry in New Zealand and the South Pacific for over 30 years. With expertise across all key manufacturing processes – from drafting through to fabrication and installation – we aim to exceed your quality, value and service expectations.

Our History

George Grant Engineering was founded in 1990 by Bob and Cheryl DeLacey. A true family business, GGE has continued to grow under the stewardship of siblings Scott, Cameron and Sharne, who expanded the fabrication capabilities and gathered together the dedicated team that make GGE a respected player in the steel fabrication and construction industry today.

Janani Grant

Contracts Director

Janani’s journey with GGE began in 2004 as a young apprentice. 2024 will mark his 20 years of service at the company. After gaining trade certification in heavy fabrication and working his way up through GGE’s draughting, detailing and QA departments, Janani has learnt GGE’s processes from beginning to end. He has been exposed to all areas of the business, most recently adopting the role of director in September 2022.

In 2018, Janani stepped sideways from his general manager role to become the company’s contracts manager, realising that this was a side of the business he wanted to work ‘hands-on’ in. This role has allowed him to develop a strong team mentality, basing his own success on how each staff member is able to thrive and achieve in their roles.

Janani lives by the phrase, “There’s no CAN’T in George Grant” – an apt description of GGE’s culture. His driving goal is to foster strong client relationships and trust. Any time away from the office is spent with family, or building guitars.
