Focal has been operational in Queenstown for the last three years servicing the higher-end residential & commercial construction market for architectural metalwork, while also creating feature pieces for clients’ homes.


We are a niche fabrication business specialising in one-off feature pieces. Focal offers a complete high-end bespoke product tailored to each client’s needs, that is able to deal with the typically tricky requirements, changes to designs & quality expectations that they may have. The business plan is simple: manufacture New Zealand-made products with everything sourced as close to Queenstown as possible, with no compromise on the design, the manufacturing and ensuring the customer is receiving the service they expect.


Focal is first & foremost a metal fabrication & welding company. We work with all metals & sheetmetal including steel, stainless steel, corten, aluminium, copper & brass. A precision MIG welding & TIG welding service is available.


We also work closely with other craftsmen to supply the client with a start to finish product.

We happily work with clients from all around New Zealand who demand only the best.


Focal is owned & operated by George Hayden. George has over 10 years of experience in the metal fabrication industry learning to be a welder from 16, &, completing an apprenticeship in engineering after high school. He then travelled over to the United Kingdom where he spent time working for leading designers in the industry.

George has managed to get a wealth of experience as a metal fabricator in his 10 years in the trade by working at a diverse range of engineering outfits.

Once back in New Zealand, he could not find the high quality products that he had been manufacturing and decided to start Focal in Queenstown.
