Hi, my name is Phil Blake. I have 15 years experience welding and fabricating steel across the residential, commercial and industrial markets.
I have aspired to build my welding company based on a solid reputation of customer satisfaction, professionalism and quality workmanship.
My business aim is to be ‘The go to steel company’. This is what we strive towards with all that we do for our customers.
We don’t want a one off job, we want to earn a solid reputation with you personally so that we have your loyalty and trust as a customer.
You will know that you can always rely on us to give you 100% integrity in all that we do for you.
How it all started
I’ve always had a skill for working with my hands, so when I finished high school in 2005 I started my apprenticeship and 4 years later after finishing my apprenticeship, I completed a diploma in applied engineering.
The company I trained with completed a wide range of works from sheet metal to heavy structural steel. I then spent 6 years working for a large company involved in plant maintenance, welding repairs on crane booms and structures and even spent several months in the Pacific Islands on several projects.
After seeing out the Waterview tunnel project with my previous employer, I decided to venture out on my own. Starting out in my garage at home with minimal equipment I began supplying local builders with structural steel work. From there I have taken on many challenging projects including architectural features for award winning homes. We now have a East Tamaki based workshop packed full of gear to get the jobs done.
The company is growing and we have big plans for the future - we are planning to expand further so that more clients can benefit from our top class workmanship and great customer service.
Blake Steel is just the right sized company to offer personalised service and attention, but we still have the resources available to meet and exceed our clients’ needs and expectations.
We have extra skilled and specially selected contractors on hand to help out if the job requires it. Our company’s continued success is due to our high standard of customer service and workmanship that is second to none. This is verified by written testimonials, many repeat clients, and our unique 7 Point Satisfaction Guarantee.
If you are looking for quality and integrity in the trades you hire, and you would like to experience the peace of mind that comes knowing you have the right welding and fabrication tradespeople behind you, that are ready to go when needed, with the security of a written guarantee then you’re in the right place!
