Christmas holidays and 2017 in review

Santa is coming in less than a month!!! So we will soon be on summer holidays although it seems hard to believe right now. Some warm sunny weather we sure do deserve after such a wet winter, although it was not that cold!!!

Merry Christmas!


PLEASE NOTE: This year our last working day before Xmas (a half day in real terms as we knock off at noon) will be 21st December, and first day back at work is the 15th January 2018.

Happy holidays to all, many thanks for your support we rely on our great staff, suppliers, customers, as well as processors and contractors to enable Timspec to operate.


2017 a year with a General Election for NZ and a change in Government has seen the economy slower then we all had expected. Uncertainty does that. Now we have a new Government and a few new directions we hope to see some more certainty. The wet winter did nothing to help with lots of delays to building projects. Funding and regulatory requirements have compounded delays as well. A shortage of skills to enable the building boom to happen is another problem. The shortages in skills are costly in mistakes, and delays. Mistakes in ordering, measuring, and managing. Delays because of there are no people at all or those available struggle to do the job. More training and maybe more selected immigration, is an answer to some of these shortages.

A lot of construction companies and Builders are doing great, just not everyone.

An election, banking issues and shortage of skilled labour makes for interesting times.
/imagesdb/Issue/8e64db45-79ee-4e03-8970-65aa52a393c8.jpgSupply Overview
