Crown Sheetmetal are specialists in designing and manufacturing stainless steel vessels for the wine, dairy and food processing industries.

The Crown brand also incorporates Crown Stainless Systems, which specialises in winery equipment including walkways, conveyors, drains and fittings.

Based in Invercargill, Crown has been in business since 1974 and joined the NDA Group in early 2008. Since then, it’s expanded to incorporate two workshops in Blenheim, giving it a presence throughout the South Island – and a base in one of New Zealand’s premium wine-growing regions.

Ready for anything

The three sites also produce a range of other products, including vessels for the dairy and biodiesel industries, and cabinets and control centres for the electrical industry.

The 3500sqm Invercargill workshop includes a high bay, which makes it easier and more efficient to build large vessels such as wine tanks. With a high bay also a part of the Blenheim facility, Crown Sheetmetal can build vessels of up to 19 metres high and weighing in at up to 60 tonnes.

A team of skilled designers and draughters work closely with our fabricators, welders and polishers to ensure that your project is delivered to the highest standard.

Ganimede Static Red Fermentation wine tanks

Crown Sheetmetal are the licensed New Zealand manufacturers of the Ganimede Static Red Fermentation wine tanks. These tanks contain a simple diaphragm that uses the naturally-occuring CO2 from the ferment to continuously mix the marc. This allows for a gradual release of colour, tannins and flavours, and results in a more aromatic wine with subtle tannins and a smooth finish.

Manufacturing to your requirements

Because we manufacture on-site we can produce tanks to virtually any dimensions you need, with optional glycol cooling and insulation. Tank sizes range from 2,500 litres to 540,000 litres and can be either plinth-mounted or free-standing.

Crown Sheetmetal also have full access to the services and capabilities of other NDA Group companies – so there is no better choice for your industry.
