BEING A PARTNER TO WAIKATO BUSINESS
Cutshop Waikato has cemented its offer as a support to a wide range of businesses and sectors in the rapidly growing Waikato region since 2016. Those served not only reflect the variety of the local economy but also the flexibility of Cutshop as a contract cutting service.
Franchisee Keith Hofer arrived at Cutshop following an early career in information technology and is now using his experience to power the production side of the manufacturing business to deliver innovative solutions. “From the cutting of one board to the creation of a complex product it is the combination of programming and production that can help anyone with an idea, bring it to life,” he says.
“Many people come to Cutshop wanting us to cut panels for kitchens, cupboards, wardrobes and shelves, and we have become their preferred supplier - this is a big part of our business.” “But a lot of people also want us to be their manufacturing partner for a product they’ve thought about or designed, that they want to see as a prototype and then a finished product.”
The range of projects Cutshop Waikato has supported in a short space of time, speak for themselves - among them are:
Mini-kitchen fit-outs for a 50 campervans, over an 12-week pre-summer period
Building bobby pens for a Waikato based farm manufacturer
Developing mobile retail units for a Hamilton pharmacy
A turntable desk for a DJ
Producing 85 circular table tops for a large venue based catering company
Providing framework to support an arched bridge construction
Decking for ute and van fit-outs
Working with a toy entrepreneur to build a range of Dinorockers - dinosaur rocking horses
Developing a innovative, multi-mode high chair and standing tower product for toddlers, and parents!
“The variety of what we can do is probably one of the biggest attractions for customers - combining IT and advanced production processes, we operate a very smart factory that’s able to produce everything from a garage shelf, to highly sophisticated fit-outs and even creative toys.
“But it’s also the volume of work we can handle between all three Cutshop factories that’s a benefit meaning we can scale for the largest of jobs.” Hamilton is Cutshop’s first franchise location outside Auckland and is proving the value of the service by being versatile, with a can-do attitude - its success shows it fits well with regional business.

“Cutshop are really easy to deal with, they’re very friendly guys. We’ve put a bit of pressure on them at times and they’ve done well. Given the quantities involved in this job, it needed to be done using a CNC machine to handle the volume and repeatability. Cutshop always deliver a nice, tidy job. The flow-through has been much easier – and that keeps our customer happy.” Read more here.
