Coresteel Buildings Manawatu director Geoff Spencer and wife Kelsey Spencer recently won awards for marketing excellence, regional growth and high-value building sales.

The awards were received at the annual Coresteel Buildings National Conference, held 2-3 March in Paihia. Coresteel Buildings specialise in the design, manufacture and construction of steel buildings.

“Geoff Spencer and his team at Coresteel Manawatu are excellent brand ambassadors and have made a significant effort in promoting the cost-effectiveness of the Coresteel package in their local market.  Their sales strategy, marketing, sponsorship, networking, event and signage initiatives have resulted in substantial growth over the past year, with further successes to be had,” says Haemish Reid, General Manager, Coresteel Buildings.

The region was awarded the prize for selling the single highest value kitset in 2015. The building, Ali Arc Logistics is a 4,200sqm warehouse storage facility for milk powder and was built using a Tapered Box Beam structure. The wide spans, clean lines and bird resistance properties of the steel beam technology were ideal for the build and developer Robert Bartley from Bartley Group Holdings Ltd described the design and build process as seamless.

In the past year, Coresteel Manawatu has also worked on major commercial builds for Emmett’s Truck Services, Comac Industries, Denver Stock Feeds and Armada Farms, alongside a number of other commercial and rural builds.

“Over the past five years the advancements in Coresteel’s steel frame technology and software has placed us in a very competitive position in our local market. The support of an active nationwide group certainly helps with the brand exposure too,” says Geoff Spencer, Director, Coresteel Buildings Manawatu.

Before Coresteel, Geoff spent 25 years in the construction industry, starting with a trade and advancing through the ranks to project management and later as a company director. Following this Geoff sold his shares and purchased the Coresteel franchise.
