Our History



AR Engineering started in 1987, in Andrews garage at home as a means to provide for his young family, as time went on Andrew, got his first work shop in Sockburn Christchurch, working long hours just to get ahead and at times even his wife was working there too. 

A Few years later moved to a bigger work shop with work coming out his ears, the dream had now really been taken to a reality, with more staff being hired every few months, with son Brendan only a young lad at this stage took a shine to Engineering and also start to help Andrew out on weekend and school holidays, at 17 Brendan left school and and become full time Engineer. 

Father and Son now tacking the bigger dream together. Brendan took on the custom design and CAD drawing for Andrew.  Things where Really starting to boom for A R Engineering, Bigger workshop at 750 Halswell Junction Road (our current location) and more staff. Not long after they released that staff didn't have the same care and pride in there work that they did so the two man team was formed, as Andrew and Brendan were getting run of there feet again they started a long interview process to find the perfect person they employed Paul with the will to learn, a young engineer who has learnt the trick of the trade from AR Engineering.
