Our Approach

To remain on top of our game, we’re constantly updating our methods and systems. This means our tech, our factory and most importantly our people are the best the industry has to offer. It’s why we’re considered New Zealand’s leading construction, commercial interiors and joinery company.

Make Anything

Our reputation has been built brick by brick, cabinet after cabinet since Bill Gartshore started in 1956. We take every shop fitout and hotel interior very seriously. We travel the globe in search of the latest design trends, materials and innovations. This allows us to bring the best the world has to offer, back home. Whatever you have in mind, we have the passion and means to make it happen. We stake our reputation on it.


As the old saying goes, when you want something done right, do it yourself.
Unlike other companies, we do everything in-house. This allows for a more seamless process, achieving better results for our clients. The earlier we get involved in planning, executing and crafting a project the better.

Capacity &

When we say we can do something, we mean it. Our unparalleled experience, capability and capacity speaks for itself. Our people, equipment, facilities and knowhow make us true masters of our trade. Big or small, we can do it all.


There’s a lot that sets us apart but having good people across the length and breadth of our country is one of the things that makes us unique. Having branches where you need them, means face-to-face meetings and personal accountability is just around the corner. It also gives us better understanding of customer needs in different regions. Everyone and every project is different. Fortunately, there’s one company that has the experience to do it all.


We use the highest quality materials and expertise in everything we do. We want our work to last for a long time, and we feel the same way about our beautiful country and the communities that call it home. We only use FSC certified forest products, we use a process called “nesting”, which allows for minimal waste, and we donate off-cuts and spare materials to charities that need them most. All cardboard, aluminium and copper is recycled on-site.

Health & Safety Commitment

We are committed to ensuring a safe and healthy working environment.  Our business involves numerous risks through the activities we conduct, and therefore we ensure our management and workers are totally responsible and committed to the continuous improvement of the WG Health and Safety Policy and the overall Health and safety Management System

‘Tank has grown to become a nationwide chain of over 100 stores over the last 20 years, Gartshore has supported Tank along the way and been responsible for the majority of our new store fit outs and existing store refurbishments from as far North as Whangarei and as far South as Invercargill. Gartshore have proved to be cost effective and able to meet our often tight deadlines, all whilst keeping the quality of workmanship high.’

‘The design team at ADG have worked very closely with the Gartshore Group for over 30 years. The Gartshore Group have always been fantastic to work with and real efficiencies are continually gained on time-critical projects through their attention to detail, quality focus and their experienced project management team always having their finger on the pulse. The Team at ADG are very proud of the work that we do with the Gartshore Group and the fact that not only are the projects aesthetically pleasing, functional, energy efficient and designed to stand the test of time but are also constructed and delivered to the planned schedule.’
