Innovative Projects

Our team of experts at Douglas love a challenge. With more than 20 years in the industry, we’ve worked on many unique and innovative projects, from furniture through to boats, cars, campers and planes.

Recently we were involved in the full overhaul of a large 5th wheeler motorhome. From a complete re-carpet including steps to reupholstering the entire set of settees, dining chairs and interior squabs and repairing the motorhome’s damaged exterior awning and roll-out blind, the Douglas team worked to a tight deadline to save the live-in owners exorbitant motel costs, while bringing their visions to life.

When it comes to marine textiles, our team win awards. In 2018 Douglas won an Outdoor Fabric Products Association of New Zealand (OFPANZ) Award for marine fabrication for our work creating a complete custom canopy makeover and cover for The Great White. Using CAD technology, we modified the boat’s existing frame and designed and fabricated a bespoke canopy to accommodate the owner’s height. We also made custom covers to protect the boat and its motors while in transit and storage. The annual OFPANZ Conference is a prestigious event, giving entrants the chance to showcase their best work. Competing against the best in the trade, the Douglas team were honoured to win the award for this project.
