A word from Neil - June 2023

An interesting year

We are heading toward the end of another financial year at CSP and it’s been interesting to reflect on the year we’ve had. I have enjoyed meeting many of our customers and engineers on our stands at various conferences around the country this year and we have a full programme to attend over the next 12 months - culminating in a stand at Intertraffic Amsterdam in April 2024. Hopefully, many of you will be attending these stands and conferences. Please come and say hi to the team. See the newsletter for the events where we will have stands.

Very busy with poles and columns

Our production facility has been flat out all year making a wide variety of poles, columns and masts for use all over New Zealand. I love walking around the site and seeing the amazing work our team do to turn a set of drawings into real-life communication masts, streetlight columns or poles.


As you are aware roading projects - whether they be maintenance, retrofits or new projects - have been very quiet over the last year or so. We are hoping, as many of you are, that general infrastructure activity picks up over the next 12 months.

New products

We recently installed bollards at our site to separate the car park from the general public. This led to us being able to offer this type of bollard to the market – see our piece on the CSP Low Impact Bollard for more information about the range of Security Bollards we offer.

We have also now formalised our offer for customers around Traffic Poles.

Please click the links to view information on these poles - Joint Use Mast Arm, Pedestrian and Special Vehicle Lane Poles.

Lastly we welcome Craig Seymour to the team as our new Demand and Supply Chain Manager. Craig comes to us with a lot of experience in supply chain management. We feel this new role will mean a more streamlined service for customers.

Stay warm, dry and safe wherever you are around the country as we head into the winter months. As always please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone or email me should you need any help from myself or the CSP team.
