Trina White have purchased the Waikato Franchise.
The Barn Company is a new company franchising throughout New Zealand in
conjunction with one of New Zealand’s leading steel fabricators. The Barn Company
brings to the market a totally unique portal structure system. This system is patented
and proudly New Zealand owned and manufactured. As a result of this innovation The
Barn Company customer will benefit from an enhanced performance ranging from
cost effectiveness, simplicity of construction and a very strong building integrity.
The Barn Company offers a full range of traditional designs and in conjunction with
it’s design team, also offers their customers a fully customised service to ensure that
they are able to design a building that meets all their needs.
As The Barn Company Waikato Franchisees, Gary and Trina bring significant business
experience to The Barn Company coupled with a great love of the Waikato region.

Company parent company and full design and engineering resources available for
all their customers. With Trina’s accounting background and Gary’s contracting

to our Waikato customers at a very competitive price with a totally unique
construction system” Trina says.
Gary and Trina have secured offices in 115 Market Street and have taken an innovative
approach in showcasing the bracketless portal system by constructing a barn within these
premises. The office is an ideal opportunity for the customers to look, feel and touch this
unique construction system and truly appreciate the versatility that it can provide them.
As Trina said “the new offices needed to be partitioned anyway and we
thought this was a brilliant way to show what the barn company has to offer.”

from a garage through to a cow shed to take the opportunity to come into their offices from
