Manufacturing since 1976
Tasman Aluminum has been manufacturing aluminium windows and doors in Tauranga since 1976. Our company founder John Lear was a keen sailor and he named the company after the Tasman sea.
When Tasman Aluminum began, windows were selected from the standard range of sizes, they were ordered from the factory in Auckland and delivered to the local manufacturer in a kitset box. There were two colour options Anodized Bronze or Silver.
Tasman Aluminum manufactured windows and doors under the Lyte brand during the 80’s and 90’s and became skilled in commercial joinery. The company has completed some of Tauranga’s biggest building projects. The late 1990’s saw major development in Mount Maunganui with the Twin Towers, the Beaumont and the Atrium being completed. Tasman also participated in the recladding of the Westpac building on Devonport Rd. No cranes were used in this project and the glass was moved up the scaffold hand over hand..
In 2000 Tasman Aluminum joined the Fairview Group family and continued its growth to become one of New Zealand’s largest aluminium joinery manufacturers. Very large projects like the Rotorua Events Centre and the Number Eleven apartments were successfully completed. The skill of the team ensured the projects ran smoothly and the buildings still look great today.
In 2015 Fairview Group bought Tasman Aluminum and the company is now rebranding to show the Fairview family alliance. Tasman Aluminium’s exceptional windows and doors, service and team are all the same. The commercial team has recently completed the new state of the art ACG gymnasium at Pyes Pa and they are working some new exciting projects around the Bay of Plenty and Waikato.
Tasman Aluminum want to celebrate this next step in their journey with the local community and they thank everyone for their support over the last 40 years. Tasman Aluminum has an exciting future ahead.
