Front row: Jeril Naidu, Robin Craig and Neelufa Khan. Robin Craig is upbeat and positive about Kaikohe and its business. The Craig Engineering owner has moved his 37-year-old company into the massive building that used to house Fairhall Motors on Kaikohe's Broadway. What started out as a modest blacksmiths, spring-making and general engineering business at the end of Lindvart St all those years ago, with just Robin and one engin- eer, has turned into a mainstream engineering enterprise employing up to eight staff. We've seen some huge changes over the years,'' Robin says. Kaikohe was a big farming and industrial hub with organisations like Dalgettys and North Auckland Farmers here. Forestry is our biggest customer now but farmers and general con- tracting come a close second.'' Opportunity knocks is a phrase Robin frequently uses. There's big scope in Kaikohe. It's an attractive place for commercial and industrial investment. And we're neatly placed between the two coasts,'' he says. The move to bigger premises has allowed room for a spacious recep- tion area and engineering supply shop for browsing customers, while the back houses the hub of the engineering works. There's a giant break press and guillotine, the former for folding and shaping sheet steel, the latter for cutting it. The machines are unique in the mid north. Elsewhere in the main workshop are welders, fasteners, rollers, threaders and a mobile hydraulic repair truck. A large mobile welder will soon to be added for site visits. The retail side of the business houses a huge array of engineering consumables -- bearings, lubricants, quality tools, transport supplies and material for forest and farm. I have been incredibly lucky in always having a loyal staff,'' Robin says. We're looking forward to con- tinuing to be of great service to one and all as needed for many years to come.''
