Our History

Watkins family

Auckland Steel was established 9 May 1975 by The Watkins Family of Manurewa.  The company has fabricated and erected hundreds of buildings in the Auckland region, and ceased trading in the Structural Steel industry in Auckland June 2009.

Now re-established under the umbrella of Red Stag Metal Fabrication Ltd a new generation of both male and female fabricators has evolved.  The Watkins family  designs, fabricates and installs Steel and Aluminium Gates and Automation for both  residential and commercial markets.  Through three generations our passion for metalwork, construction and top quality service continues to grow and we look forward to being involved in your next project no matter how big or small.
