Precut Construction has been pre fabricating frames and trusses for over 25 years. Initially the business consisted of a team of 5 and solely focused on frames and trusses. The business has grown to include a sizable yard and employing over 14 staff members, supplying a range of products and services throughout every stage of your build. Being a family owned, small business allows us to provide personalised services to our clients/builders. Most of our business is generated by word of mouth and a loyal client base.
Our Motto is not to be biggest, but to be the best. If there is an onsite problem, we arrange to have our staff onsite immediately to rectify any issues.
We place an emphasis on the importance of investing in good staff. Our forward-thinking attitude and the quality emphasis we have built our reputation on has seen the business grow from two staff in 1991 to a team of 13, which includes a managing director, sales manager, factory manager, detailers and frame/truss technicians.
