Wide Span Sheds specialises in the custom design, supply and construction of pre-engineered buildings using only high quality New Zealand Steel. We service domestic, rural and commercial markets. A recent restructure has opened up rare and limited opportunities in the North Island for business savvy entrepreneurs.

the opportunity 

Wide Span Sheds is expanding in the North Island. This presents a rare opportunity for motivated entrepreneurs with strong people and sales skills and a background in project management or the building industry to become part of the amazing growth story of the Steelx group of companies. Founded in Australia in the year 2000, Steelx, with Wide Span Sheds at the vanguard of its operations, has become the fastest growing supplier of steel building kits in Australasia.

Wide Span Sheds started out as an e-commerce and call centre business in 2001 with great success. As time went by we realised the growing need to have a local presence in the New Zealand market. Through this realisation we granted three franchises with physical stores in North Auckland, Waikato and Christchurch, with a brief to service the whole of New Zealand.

These New Zealand Wide Span Sheds franchises are finding it impossible to keep up with demand outside their immediate areas so a new strategy has been developed to greatly expand the number of franchises in the North Island. You can share in this expansion but be quick as these opportunities will not last.

new franchise opportunities now available:

  1. Whangarei (showroom near Whangarei would be ideal)
  2. Kaitaia/Kerikeri (a showroom at Kerikeri would be ideal)
  3. Taranaki (a showroom at New Plymouth would be ideal)
  4. Manawatu/Wanganui (a showroom at Wanganui or Palmerston North would be ideal)
  5. Wellington/Masterton (a showroom at Masterton would be ideal)
  6. Hawkes Bay (a showroom near Napier city would be ideal)
  7. Gisborne (a showroom at Gisborne would be ideal)
  8. Bay of Plenty (a showroom at Rotorua would be ideal)
  9. Tauranga (a showroom near Tauranga City would be ideal.
