MEET OUR TEAM

BRIAN HARDGRAVE

Leaving school at the age of 14 and serving a building apprenticeship in Wellington, I moved up to the Naki in 1987.  I started out in Stratford working for a building company known as Jeffare Bros and soon took over managing the aluminium division. In 1994 I was given, and grabbed the opportunity of purchasing the business and reinvented as Central Aluminium.

Well known in the community due my sporting interests, among them rugby and cricket, I now spend a lot of my spare time playing both outdoor and indoor bowls.

Having a great knowledge of the local area combined with my aluminium joinery and building experience, I can help you to ensure that you are getting the correct product for the right situation.

BRENDA HARDGRAVE

I first met Brian in 2005, was living in Wanganui and running a fulltime practise as a Massage Therapist and knew nothing about the aluminium joinery industry.  After moving up to Stratford I became more involved in the aluminium business and eventually took over the managing of all the office work and more recently the flow of production in the factory.

Our next step within the business is to engage ‘Lean Manufacturing’ which will be right up my alley as I love being organised and having little clutter.

My spare time I spend time in our garden or with family.
