Make it work for you.

The business was founded by John Hitchcock in 2004 after 15 years experience as a senior engineer working in the Nelson region. Engineering runs in the Hitchcock blood as John’s father Ken was head of engineering for over 25 years at the Waitaki(?) Freezing works in Richmond near Nelson.

Smart Engineering Services (SES) was formerly known as 88 Valley Engineering and was rebranded as a result of organic growth and adding a wider range of equipment and people that enabled the company to service both small and larger clients.

The historical success of the business has been based on a passion to deliver the best quality engineering solutions regardless of the size or budget of the project.
