Our Story

It has been a journey of measured paces and bold leaps across the decades. Now, with the arrival of BelCanto Group, we step ahead once more.

The origins of our company started back in the 1980s when a small New Zealand engineering business began manufacturing steel fencing and gates for swimming pools. 

The company thrived, winning new work and contracts regularly. However we were not comfortable with coasting along. After researching lead times and product life-spans we made the leap from steel to aluminium in the 90s and, with our team of designers, engineers and project managers, stepped up into the commercial sector.

Here we increased our market presence with new product lines and manufacturing expertise. By the early 2000s we were well placed as one of New Zealand’s premier aluminium fabricators and in 2011 opened a purpose built factory and powder-coating plant in Levin.  

…‘beautiful’ covers a lot

of ground within our

ethos. Yes, it is the final

result. But so too is it

the process….

With the two distinct divisions of the company requiring specific attention and support the big decision was made as the decade drew to a close to separate into new brands and businesses.

Urban Group continued on with the fencing, gates and automation sphere. BelCanto Group was established to focus all of our balustrade, balcony and façade business.

Now we are in the 20s and are on the front foot once more, building New Zealand’s beautiful. Here, ‘beautiful’ covers a lot of ground within our ethos.  Yes, it is the final result. But so too is it the process. Pragmatic efficiency is beautiful. Effective innovation is beautiful.  

A lot has changed within the industry over the last three decades – and this rate of change looks set to accelerate. We will maintain pace with the industry and the needs of our clients, delivering pioneering solutions that ensure New Zealand’s built environment can continue to connect, protect and uplift its people.

Looking back we are proud of our history, of the projects completed and the relationships forged. Looking forward, we are excited with the opportunities ahead. This is an exhilarating time to be working smarter and harder for our buildings, our towns, our cities and our communities. With a hugely experienced team, innovative business partners and our wide-ranging expertise we aspire to a beautiful tomorrow.

Our Values

Without the right values we will never reveal the true worth within our potential. This is how we want every BelCanto team member to work. This is what we expect them to perform to. This IDEAL is how we succeed together

Integrity: Stand up and be counted
New Zealand is a small country and in our industry everyone knows everyone. Taking responsibility for our actions and standing behind our people and our products is a huge part of what has made our company successful in the past. We cannot afford to let our reputation slip for one minute. We must always act with the utmost integrity.
Determination: Stay the course
Things can (and will) get difficult now and then. We remain determined in how we solve problems for our clients, be they in design, delivery or construction. We remain pragmatic too – anyone who has ever said, “If one door closes, another opens” clearly never considered the humble doorknob. We will stay focused and innovate and accelerate the work.
Energy: Be passionate
The great thing about energy is that it can be channelled onwards and outwards to people, processes and projects. That’s why we expect passion from our team in the quality of their design, workmanship and service. With this passion comes pride in our skill and confidence in our expertise. Life’s too short to work any other way.
Adaptability: Lean into change
If there’s one thing that’s constant it’s change. We must continue to work with our clients in architecture, construction and development to ensure we can lead them through this change with clarity and confidence. Our innovative approach to product development will ensure these clients can increase the efficiency of their work and effectiveness of their results.
Likability: Make friends (and keep them)
We will only succeed if we continue to treat others as we would want to be treated – and if we always respect and nourish the professional relationships we have grown over the years. There’s a great saying, ‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’ With our industry network, supplier friends, and client community, we will go together.
