The Tokoroa Welding Staff

Peter Bridson

Peter Bridson

Originally a contractor since leaving school he changed to farm management, then sharemilking with wife Kathy in 1983. He'd always carried out his own maintenance on contracting & farm equipment. Nothing has changed from the time he was a boy, pulling his toys apart to find out how they worked. After 13 years of farming they moved to Tokoroa and started up Tokoroa Welding. In 2007 he expanded his skill set again by buying SolidWorks & learning to build his designs in 3D.

Kathy Bridson

Kathy Bridson

Kathy, a born and bred country girl, started out a laboratory technician back in 1973 before getting into farming with husband Peter. Her role in Tokoroa Welding was originally office work, but the overalls never really came off and she can be seen welding and finishing up jobs. A multi-talented woman to be sure.

Cleveland - yet to capture

Cleveland Cherry

Cleveland is now a full time engineering apprentice with us after starting out working for Tokoroa Welding during the school holidays. He has a great attitude to work & relates well with our customers for someone his age.
