RR Bramley & Co Ltd was established over 100 years ago and we’ve been contract machining ever since. A lot has changed for us in that time. We started manufacturing our own range of engineering machine tools back in the 1950’s under our Bramley brand, and while the products may have changed, the brand remains synonymous for engineering quality and performance.

These days we run a suite of Okuma machining and turning centres supported with CAD/CAM/CNC production and Solid Works design, but it’s still the experience of our team that sets us apart.

We’ve long established relationships with other leading NZ manufacturers, producing bespoke and production components for applications as varied as construction steel forming to food production, and even a bit of Americas Cup. We machine all metals, alloys and composites to the highest accuracy and quality

So why use us?

  • Experience. You don’t last 100 years in engineering unless you’re dependable.
  • Capability. Our team are highly skilled with average tenure of 20+ years each.
  • Proficiency. We’ve been manufacturing for almost 70 years. Component manufacture and short run production are what we do.
  • Capacity. Our manufacturing gives us flexibility to accommodate the urgent.
  • Network. We have a long-established network of suppliers and sub-contractors that support us to deliver every time.

Standard toolroom drill presses and radial drills.


We are experts at one-off jobbing work, be it for a replacement part, prototype... you name, we can machine it!


We have a full toolroom set-up with Centre lathes, Hydraulic presses, Cut-off saws, high accuracy measurement, precision template origination, etc.


We have the EDGE CAM Machining software suite, plus the SOLID EDGE Solid Modelling software to support our fully programmable machining operation. However, we can import all standard CAD/CAM file exchange formats, such as, DXF, AutoCAD, ppf, sldprt, iges, etc.

CNC Short-run Production

With our range of CNC Turning and Machining Centres, we are ideally configured to produce parts that are either simple or complex to exacting standards and reproducability.

Parts Assembly

We have a highly experienced team of fitters and machinists who can assemble componentry to exacting standards.


Our light-fabrication section can easily manufacture engineering items that require both welded construction and machining operations.

MIG/TIG welding

Our welding operation encompasses the full range of welding capabilities from MIG/TIG through to component build-up.
