We realise it’s important for you to know who you’re working with. It also makes it a much friendlier way of doing business. Many of Farmweld’s customers are interstate and we never get a chance to meet in person. As such we strongly believe you should have the opportunity to at least put a face to a name and voice!
Andrew and Tricia run Farmweld as a partnership. They collaborate on projects, drawing their skills together to give you the best possible solution to your needs. Tricia’s creative vision is balanced by Andrew’s technical skills in fabrication & blacksmithing. So you’re guaranteed to get a product that looks lovely without compromising on strength. The workshop has one full-time employee, Graeme who helps Andrew with filling orders and making the metalwork.
Tricia’s bubbly voice is usually the first point of contact for many callers. She is responsible for the admin, marketing, sales & office type stuff which everyone else avoids! Tricia is the ‘creative’ personality behind many of the bespoke wrought ironwork and is happy to advise and assist with designs. Her artistic talents extend to the workshop with plasma cut wall & garden art. You can also find her beautiful paintings and artwork on Facebook, Instagram and on her website triciahoodart.com where you can view & purchase her work.
Andrew spends most of his time in the workshop. Andrew’s responsibilities are mainly ‘operational’ and his skills lie in the fabrication and blacksmithing areas. Andrew will not compromise on quality, so don’t bother asking him to make something ‘cheap’! As Tricia has been heard to say, “when you’re 6’5” I guess you tend to build everything like a brick dunny!” Blacksmithing is also Andrew’s hobby.
Graeme is the powerhouse of the workshop, our welder-extraordinaire. His cheerful and bubbly nature brightens up the workshop. Graeme came to Farmweld with an extensive knowledge of the building industry. His knowledge of fabrication and structural techniques is greatly valued as is he. He can be found working away behind the welder or talking through more complex jobs with Andrew. Graeme is enthusiastic about gardening and breeding budgies, having won awards for both his dahlias and birds.
