True Fold Ltd was formed by Ken Balvers and Nathan Maxwell in late 2019.

The primary objective was to manufacture flashings and gutters for CS Roofing Canterbury Ltd, which True Fold Ltd operates alongside and shares the same premises. Following a visit to Melbourne, an order for a new 6.5 metre folder, slitter, and double de-coiler was placed. The arrival of the plant was delayed amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and installation was not completed until mid-2020.

Two experienced, skilled operators were employed, and following some specific training via video link form Australia, operations commenced in July 2020 and by the end of the month things were running smoothly and efficiently.

With the purchase of additional plant locally, operations were expanded to include the manufacture of rainwater heads and chimney caps. A recent addition to the folder now gives us the ability to install soft edging to flashings. In order to meet customer needs, an increased stock holding of coils has resulted in an expanded range of colours and materials being available.

We pride ourselves on the quality and accuracy of the products that we produce and the measure of our success is client satisfaction.
