Providing industrial rope access to inaccessible locations throughout New Zealand

Abseil Access staff are specialists in rope access engineering, providing specialist services nation-wide on sites and locations that seem inaccessible.

In 1992 mountain climbing enthusiasts Martin Wilson and DJ Matheson had the kernal of an idea to set up a rope access company that went that extra inaccessible inch. Martin’s engineering background and DJ’s rope safety expertise were the perfect combination to ensure Abseil Access’s success.

In 2018 Abseil Access will celebrate 25 years as an industry leader in safe and effective geotechnical work, bridge design and build, asset integrity and conservation projects. Honesty and integrity underpin every aspect of our business. We have been at the forefront of recovery work in both the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes, and we have been influential in safety recovery plans in both these areas.

We combine stability with flexibility. We are stable enough to concentrate on customer satisfaction and flexible enough to respond to the constantly changing needs of industry.

We provide a high quality service by carefully listening to our clients and fully understanding their needs, while at the same time ensuring the safety of our employees. We are always keen to hear feedback from clients so we can keep improving our services. With offices in Wellington and Christchurch, we have skilled, effective, workers nationwide. Please feel free to get in touch to find out more.
