The franchise opportunity also delivers dedicated marketing zones and is supported by Steel and Tube’s manufacturing centre and delivery-points.

Founded in Australia in 2002 and launched in New Zealand in 2006, Wide Span Sheds has enjoyed a measured yet swift rise to success in the steel building industry. As one of the most industry-respected suppliers, Wide Span Sheds’ range comprises Class 10 sheds, garages, workshops, barns, arenas and stables, as well as a select range of commercial and industrial premises in assorted classes.
