Stahlton Engineered Concrete was established in New Zealand in the 1960’s, trading under the name Amalgamated Brick & Pipe Ltd, supplying pre-stressed ribs under a Swiss licence which was branded Stahlton (German translation: Stahl = steel, ton = clay)
Fulton Hogan Ltd has operated precast concrete factories in Balclutha, Dunedin since the 1980s and then later in Christchurch. Their pre-stressed flooring products were manufactured under the Stahlton licence. These factories also manufactured more complex structural precast and architectural precast.
In 2001, Fulton Hogan Ltd purchased Stahlton to complement their civil operations in the Auckland region.
In 2007, Stahlton purchased the Pre-Cast Components (PCC) plants in Otaki and Hamilton. PCC was a well-established precast and prestressed concrete manufacturer, and a welcome addition to Stahlton.
Later that year, Stahlton purchased five Stresscrete plants in Cromwell, Christchurch, Bulls, New Plymouth and Tauranga. With the purchase of these plants came a wealth of experience personnel and technical knowledge.
As Stahlton grew to become the major prestress and precast supplier in New Zealand, the company was united under the brand Stahlton Engineered Concrete.
Market tightening and rationalization within Fulton Hogan between 2011 to 2013 resulted in closing the Dunedin, Tauranga and Bulls factories and the sale of Balclutha, Cromwell, New Plymouth and Hamilton factories. We currently have 3 factories in Auckland, Otaki (Transpower Octagonal Poles only) and Christchurch which delivers Stahlton products throughout New Zealand.
In its 52 years of existence, Stahlton has continued to be one of the leading suppliers of flooring components throughout New Zealand. We are proud of our biggest asset, our people, who are passionate to the precast concrete industry and have vast experience and solution focused technical knowledge.
