From humble beginnings, Armoured Engineering was pioneered by two passionate and driven engineers with over 30 years combined experience between them.

Two young families came together to build a business that’s main goal was efficient, quality service with a smile, caring about their valued customers and their incredible team.

Moneys Engineering and Pirtek Taupo quickly became the team to call for all your Forestry and Agricultural Equipment needs, Hose and Fitting support along with Structural Steel and general engineering.

Once these two businesses were well established, Brook and Bernie along with a new designer Iain and the original strong team of 20, were ready to diversify and consolidate their expansive knowledge and specialised skillsets, and therefore Armoured Engineering was born.

Your trusted business now has the capability and focus of not only providing all their original service and support, but also working with you in building Quality Production Machinery from concepts and design, through to manufacturing and fitting.

BUILT FOR BATTLE is our Motto and providing robust and durable solutions to the Forestry and Farming Industry is our objective, and keeping YOU our valued customers smiling is the end game.
