MEET MATT OUR MAN IN THE FAST LANE

MEET MATT OUR MAN IN THE FAST LANE
Gymleader Crew Corner - Introducing Matt Lane, Production Manager and Install Technician when onsite and has been with us near on 5 years. Matt has been in the engineering space for over 10 years and got his start after advertising on the supermarket “looking for work” wall and landed his first job making boat balustrades and rails in his home town Helensville, Auckland.

Matt discovered his passion for making stuff, as he puts it, and going out on installs was something he really enjoyed. He had worked for a number of companies both big and small when the opportunity came up to join the team at Gymleader.
Matt gets to both make and install sporting equipment for gymnasiums across New Zealand. Some of his work covers manufacturing our basketball ceiling hung units and basketball towers to the onsite installations hanging massive Draper divider curtains which can be 30 meters long with a 10 meter drop.

What’s been your favourite project? The Fox Glacier gymnasium was a real cool job for me and a brilliant install for Gymleader. It was pleasing to see a whole community pitch in and build a centre from scratch with all the volunteers donating their time and being so rapt with all our Gymleader products. Their passion was next level! Matt experiences this vibe with most of the smaller towns as he travels all over the country installing Gymleader equipment.

When Matt’s not on the job he enjoys time with his artwork, making metal sculptures and thoroughly enjoys music and staging live events. We asked what he likes about being at Gymleader his reply “Gymleader is constantly progressing and that’s what I’m about – that’s what has kept me here”.

Great having Matt as part or of our team, we love the passion.
