Gartshore, New Zealand’s leading construction, commercial interiors and joinery company; all started with a single bicycle, some tools and a steely work ethic.

Bill Gartshore arrived from Glasgow in 1955 with nothing more than a dream and a pair of skilled hands. With a labour shortage and his joinery in high-demand, Bill decided to start his own business a year later.

65 years on, Bill’s basement is now a 30,000 square foot warehouse with state-of-the-art machinery, a skilled workforce of ready and willing staff is here to deliver your dream and a national footprint spanning the length and breadth of our country.

Bill Gartshore’s attention to detail and work ethic is still the same generations later. His son Bill and grandson Rob have taken their family’s expertise abroad, with projects completed in Australia and the South Pacific.

If the past half century is anything to go by, the future looks bright and beautifully crafted for the Gartshore Group and their clients.
