About Douglas

At Douglas, we’re experts in innovative textile design and fabrication.

Whether you’re looking to enhance and add value to your outdoor living area with a sophisticated roof, canopy or screen system, or you want to bring your car or boat back to life with our custom marine and auto upholstery, we’ll work with you to create a solution that fits your needs.

From our beginnings 20 years ago as a small auto and marine upholstery workshop right through to today, Douglas have always been innovators, crafting unique solutions for our customers. Over the years we’ve expanded our expertise to include Outdoor Living environments – a field where we’ve gained a strong reputation in the industry.

We are specialists who pride ourselves on exceeding expectations. Our award-winning team strives for perfection and places integrity at the heart of all our work, bringing you the optimal balance of style, functionality and quality.

The Douglas family

Pete and Suzanne, Owners

Douglas began a new chapter in early 2018, with new owners Pete and Suzanne coming on board to continue the legacy of innovation, craftsmanship and creating customised solutions to perfectly fit our customers’ needs.

Alongside the Douglas business, Central Hawke’s Bay locals Pete and Suzanne are raising their young family and making the most of the rural outdoor lifestyle in the Hawke’s Bay.

The Team

Our team at Douglas are a talented bunch of in-house fabricators and problem-solvers with many years of experience. We’re a diverse group, with a great mix of skill sets, age groups and backgrounds. It’s this diversity that helps us see things from different angles and come up with creative and innovative solutions.

Values

At Douglas, we believe in training great people and building careers. From apprentice fabricators to installers, our warehouse and logistics team right through to office and showroom staff, we want our people to develop and grow.

We also strive to be responsible corporate citizens and to always exceed the expectations of our customers, staff and the wider community.

We’re doing our bit to give back. Right now, that means things like sending our shade off-cuts to relief efforts in the Pacific and donating an awning to Nourished for Nil. But we’re only just getting started.

Want to work with us?

We’re always keen to hear from people with the right attitude. If you’re interested in working at Douglas, please get in touch with Peter O’Connell, Production Manager. Phone (06) 878 6300 or email orders@douglasinnovation.nz
