Matt joined the Farra Stainless team 18 months ago after being self-employed in a smaller scale engineering business. A back injury and subsequent back operation made him re-evaluate his physical job. When he heard of an opportunity at Farra Stainless in the office Matt was keen to check it out and was very happy to land a role as a Project Manager, utilising his varied and experienced engineering knowledge and expertise.
Matt enjoys the people of Farra and the change from small scale engineering to the large scale workshop and projects that Stainless offer. Projects that include stainless tanks for Fonterra and breweries all over NZ. Matt is happy to have the best seat in the office next to the TV and heat pump.
Think about what a product could be, not what it is. Innovation is the key.
One great job that Matt recalls being especially enjoyable and challenging was rebuilding an aerial atom chassis for a customer and the great communication with the customer. This included smart thinking and detailed planning to achieve the final product. It was a fun enjoyable project.
Outside of work Matt enjoys all sports (not so much the player anymore though), hanging out with family.
Paula has been with Farra for 12 years, coming from 22 years at Mainland doing various admin and marketing roles before the office was shifted to Christchurch.
She has worked in different parts of Farra including; Stainless, Sheetmetal, Lifts, and Design giving her a varied workload which she enjoys and working with a lot of different people in Farra, which is always fun and enjoyable.
Outside of work Paula is an avid reader, treasurer of the GI Football Club. The key part of her life is family and friends and retreating to their sunny holiday home in Wanaka when they can.
