CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

Texco Engineering

Intergroup has been integral in performing abrasive blasting and coating on the structural steel used by Texco Engineering to aid in the post-earthquake Christchurch rebuild. Regular repeat work from Texco Engineering is a testament to their satisfaction with our service.

Southern Cross Engineering

Intergroup regularly provides abrasive blasting and coating services to Southern Cross Engineering.

For example, we have recently prepared its grain stacker plant for export to Australia. Independent quality assurance inspections have been required at each step to ensure that the plant meets stringent Australian standards. Our work has met or exceeded the required standard every time.

“We’ve been using Intergroup for years for blasting and industrial painting. They are responsive – if I want something done, they’ll do it straight away, which is good. Excellent customer service and helpfulness. Timeliness is important in our business because production timeframes are tight. I’d given them some items to paint and then gave them some other project fabrications – the second lot was more urgent and so they rearranged their schedule for us. They are certainly hitting the mark when it comes to meeting the specs – even on complex products with high specifications.”
