/About us

/100 years Experience

Between these two local West Auckland blokes, there is an accumulation of over a 100 years' experience in the Auckland steel welding market. Jay Cee Welding was started by John Fraider (on the right) a boilermaker by trade back in 1985, with only a single mobile welder and his Ute.

With his right-hand man Mike (on the left) they have built a long-standing team of experts around them. Their team can bring an experienced hand to every project they tackle. Jay Cee Welding specialises in the fabrication and erection of structural steel for commercial and private projects.

The key to success is investing in the right technology coupled with building an experienced team of highly skilled welders, riggers and fabricators. "...because we have been working in the industry for so long we can offer effective solutions to any problem the client throws at us. An experience like that is hard to beat!"

Coming up with innovative methods combined with good old fashioned hard work is a hallmark of the company's success.
