Wayne & Jude Weatherly bought NZIA in October 1999 and decided to change the business from just a general rope access company into a company that was delivering specialized trade based skills and high quality workmanship to the industry.
This was mainly driven from the fact that Wayne is an Advanced Trade Certified Fitter/Welder and CSWIP Visual Welding Inspector.
