Allied Exteriors started trading in 2006 when two long-established plastering and painting businesses owned by Gordon Brodie and Marc Sands merged into one business called Allied Coatings Ltd. Our dream was to build an organisation whose strength was in its people and systems.
In an industry where the majority of labour is unqualified and employed on a subcontract basis, we wanted to do things differently. Our mission was to build a permanently employed workforce where it was worth investing in training and qualifying our people. Despite the challenges, we persevered with this model and are now reaping the benefits. Trade qualifications are mandatory in our business and we are very proud to have the most qualified exterior plastering team in Auckland. Investing in our people has resulted in very low staff turnover with a large portion of our 60 employees having been with us for between five and eight years.
In 2009, we started a building division to complement our plastering and painting divisions. Our building division specialises in leaky home repairs and recladding. There have been a lot of learnings in this tricky area of building over the last five years and there is no substitute for experience when it comes to leaky building remediation. We have taken the learnings and continuously refined our systems to ensure we are delivering great results for our clients. Our building division is now a key part of our business and forward strategy and just like the rest of our business, we employ a permanent team of builders.
Any business is only as good as its people. It takes a long time to build and develop a great team and we are very proud of what we have achieved by sticking to our mission and investing in our people.
With the addition of a building division to our business, we changed our name to Allied Exteriors Ltd to better reflect our wider areas of trade.
To this day our core trades remain exterior plastering, painting and building. With those in-house trade skills available in our business, it was a natural fit for us to operate in the area of property maintenance and we also began to specialise in property maintenance in 2009. This was partly due to the slow down in new construction with the GFC but is now a significant part of our business.
And that brings us to today.............Allied Exteriors is a specialist exterior plaster, painting, recladding and property maintenance business.
