In House Machining Capabilities

Kiwi born and Kiwi bred, our story started over 50 years ago in a purpose-built factory in the Auckland suburb of Glen Innes. With a vision of providing New Zealanders with market leading, functional and top quality showerware and tapware, Felton still proudly finishes each and every product right here in Aotearoa. In order to do this, we use local contracting but also maintain our own design and engineering capabilities in-house.

CnC Machines
We have three production CnC machines on site (see hero image above) and we use these to machine raw brass forgings, bar and plates into finished components.

Our production mills and lathe are used to manufacture all our in wall bodies including shower, basin /bath mixers, inlet nipples, cartridge nuts and shower faceplates. We mainly machine brass, or stainless steel as required.
