Yacht Masts

From dinghys to trailer sailers to larger yachts, we can supply complete rigs.  Services include complete strip downs to replacement of all fastenings, hardware and rigging - we can supply it all.



Swanson Rigging Services have been manufacturing and supplying flag poles to the greater Wellington region for many years.  

Supplying all ground mounted poles to Parliament buildings, Premier house, embassies, head offices, military bases, court houses and to private residences. Our flag poles are custom-made to stand up to Wellington weather.

Most of our flagpoles are tapered and use the internal halyard system with a non slap collar system to reduce flag pole noise - a desirable point when close to a house or business window.  

Flagpoles in public locations can have internal halyard ropes with lockable covers and made tamper-proof.  Flagpoles can be powder-coated to any colour.


Balustrade Wiring

For many years Swanson Rigging Services have been involved in the supply and installation of balustrade wiring.  

We have extensive knowledge in this field and are very happy to supply all materials required plus provide recommendations for set outs.  


Architectural Wire Work

If there is anything you want to hang with wire then we can help.  

Examples of our work include the hanging of art work inside Parliament Building, the fern sculpture in Civic Square, and display wires inside Massey University.  


Calf Pullers

For over 20 years Swanson Rigging Services have been supplying calf puller sets to vet services from Dargaville to Gore.

Thousands of baby calves have been pulled from cows using our calf puller sets.
