“I started with Newlands after moving from Germany. The range and variety of work is a real challenge and takes motivation and hard work but it also makes it rewarding.

Normally starting in a firm takes a long settling time but at Newlands it was quick and familiar and quickly became like an extended family. Both at work and in the community, there has been help and a lending hand for me.

I’ve found my weekends are really recharging up the hills or out fishing, a lot different to my life in Europe.” 

Lucas, Auto Electrical Engineer, Newlands Auto Electrical.


“There’s a large variety of work and plenty of getting out and about in the countryside.

We have a positive team and all help each other out. Its great to live out of the big city while still getting a good wage and even starting out it’s much easier to afford a nice house here in Ashburton.”  

Jason, Auto Electrical Engineer, Newlands Auto Electrical.
