For Engineering Expertise


Welcome to McCannics

McCannics is based in Gisborne and is an Engineering and Machine shop that is involved in factory maintenance, design and fabrication of machinery and offers an emergency breakdown service. We are also involved in the design and manufacture of hydraulic components and equipment, specialise in heavy diesel and transmission repairs and service the industrial, road transport, agricultural and marine sectors. Our 24hr Machine shop and Parts store provide an essential back up service for all of the above.


With the combined skills of the engineering and machine shop staff, we are able to carry out complex jobs with ease. The top line equipment in the machine shop also allows us to cut down considerably on manufacture times, effectively keeping labour costs down and saving you money. We also carry many frequently required parts in stock, which we self replenish, making the waiting time nil.


With our first manufacturing machine completed in 1988 we have built a considerable knowledge base in the design, fabrication and instalment over the past 24 years. We have since manufactured and installed complete factory turnkey operations into Chile, Philippines, Thailand and the USA.
