Welcome to CNC Direct
CNC Direct Limited was established by David Thumath in 2007 to supply quality well priced machine tools into the New Zealand market. With well established brands and, the experience and knowledge of David, it got off to a good start in a buoyant market.
However, we all know what happened in 2008. We soon realised that to survive in the new world we would need to diversify. David had a solid background in toolsteel and aluminium sales so High Grade Metals was born. A visit to old contacts secured a supply of toolsteel, two bandsaws purchased and the sales push began. The next step was to purchase a large aluminium plate saw and a smaller cold saw and a visit to Germany to Bikar Metalle, a large family owned aluminium supplier.
In 2011 we moved to larger premises in Onehunga and with the great product range and the service that comes from being a smaller, more agile, business we have not looked back.
On this site you will find details of our great range of CNC Machinery. All of these brands are well known and reliable. From there follow the link to High Grade Metals for more on our great range of aluminium, toolsteel and related products. All our material comes with certificates if required, traceability is very important to us and our systems allow us to track any material sold to its source.
