Focal is a niche fabrication business that has been operating in Queenstown for the last three years.


Our specialty is one-off feature pieces that are tailored to the needs of our clients. We cater to the higher-end residential and commercial construction market for architectural metalwork, while also creating unique pieces for clients' homes.

At Focal, we are passionate about creating bespoke products and believe in providing exceptional service to our clients.


We understand the typically tricky requirements, changes to designs, and high-quality expectations that they may have, and we take pride in delivering on all fronts.


Our business plan is straightforward - to manufacture New Zealand-made products with everything sourced as close to Queenstown as possible, with no compromise on design or manufacturing quality.

As a metal fabrication and welding company, we work with all metals and sheet metal, including steel, stainless steel, corten, aluminium, copper, and brass. We offer a precision MIG and TIG welding service, as well as a CNC plasma cutting service, allowing us to cut sheet and plate in-house.


We stock all commonly used materials and can provide an affordable, reliable, and quick service to clients in the Queenstown and Central Otago region.

We work closely with other craftsmen to provide clients with a start-to-finish product. We are happy to work with clients from all around New Zealand who demand only the best.


Our goal is to provide exceptional service and products that meet the unique needs of each client.


Focal was founded by George Hayden, who has over 10 years of experience in the metal fabrication industry.

George learned to be a welder at the age of 16 and completed an apprenticeship in engineering after high school.

He then travelled to the United Kingdom where he spent time working for leading designers in the industry, gaining a wealth of experience as a metal fabricator.

After returning to New Zealand, George noticed an opportunity to create the high-quality metalwork products that he had been manufacturing abroad, but had not been able to find locally.


With a wealth of experience as a metal fabricator, George decided to start Focal in Queenstown, with a focus on creating bespoke, high-end metalwork products for the residential and commercial construction market.
