Welcome to High Grade Metals

Only the best is good enough
High Grade Metals supplies high-quality aluminium, toolsteel and related products to the engineering and manufacturing sectors.  Exclusively sourced from reputable suppliers in Germany, our products deliver certitude you need.

Founded in 2007, the High Grade Metals business grew out of CNC Direct, which imports and supplies competitively priced machine tools to New Zealand customers.  CEO David Thumath is familiar with the requirements of local engineering businesses, and had excellent trade contacts with reputable machinery and metal suppliers.  By focusing on superior quality and responsive service, CNC Direct and High Grade Metals have built strong reputations within the industry.

Quality Assurance and made-to-measure service
We understand the importance of traceability.  All our materials come with certificates if required, and our systems allow us to track everything back to its source.

The business has also invested in a state-of-the-art processing centre where metals can be cut to the dimensions you require.  As a result our operations have grown steadily, and they now occupy spacious facilities in Onehunga, Auckland.

Introducing High Grade Water Cut
In 2018 we invested in one of the most advanced cutting technologies available - a Five Axis Water Cutting Machine.  As well as complementing the High Grade Metals service, this allows us to provide contract cutting services for specialist applications.

Sign works, art installations and other one-off projects can all benefit from this highly precise cutting technology, along with the usual engineering and metal working applications.
