Monkeytoe provides a full gamut of solutions for the HVAC market. These include the design and manufacture of elevated HVAC platforms, air conditioner mounts, plant screens, roof access systems, walkway systems, roof ladders, access stairs, handrails and guardrails.
Tim’s solution was the innovative Monkeytoe clip that simply snapped onto the roof sheeting. The walkway itself was built from the same base clip.
Revolutionary thinking indeed.
Almost twenty years on, and that thinking remains alive and well in a business that has grown to be New Zealand’s only full-service specialist provider of smart, safe and compliant engineered access solutions and plant systems that won’t damage the integrity of a client’s asset.
Today, Monkeytoe provides a full gamut of solutions for the HVAC market. These include the design and manufacture of elevated HVAC platforms, air conditioner mounts, plant screens, roof access systems, walkway systems, roof ladders, access stairs, handrails and guardrails.
“We’re happy to tackle and solve any Access or HVAC plant mounting challenge,” says Reuben Prestidge, Monkeytoe’s National Sales and Marketing Manager.
These solutions can either be tailor-made for a client or the result of some bright ideas the company has already developed (such as that non-penetrating Monkeytoe clip).
“We design and manufacture all of our products in our Taranaki plant,” says Prestidge. From there, they’re shipped throughout New Zealand, Australia and many parts of the Pacific, where Monkeytoe's team of trusted installers take over.
Altus Industrial has been part of the Monkeytoe story pretty much since Day One.
The Monkeytoe product range is made from aluminium composite material. Over the years, Altus Industrial has become the company’s predominant supplier of their marine-grade aluminium.
James Reid, National Sales Manager for Altus Industrial Aluminium sees the relationship between the two businesses as a flagship example of Altus’s core philosophy “Success is better shared”.
“We view our success as our customer’s success,” Reid says.
The Monkeytoe story is successful indeed, with the company having grown to be New Zealand’s leader in the commercial accessway sector in terms of market share, innovation and Best Practice.
While Monkeytoe’s product development is all done by their in-house team, there’s still ample scope for Altus to add value when it comes to materialising those concepts.
“Innovation is at the heart of everything we do,” Prestidge explains. “It opens doors to spaces where no one else is playing which is a huge motivator for our team and continues to set us apart.”
Altus Industrial is proud to be part of that journey.
