careers meet founders

Established in 1990, Auto Transform is a New Zealand-owned family business based at a purpose-built vehicle adaptation facility in Wiri, Auckland.

We’ve built our success from the ground up, consistently delivering superior transformations for commercial, passenger and mobility vehicles. In the space of automotive customisation in New Zealand, we’re known as innovators who work from a solid foundation of product knowledge and real-life experience.

Starting out as Van Extras

Before we were Auto Transform, we were Van Extras, a vehicle customisation business that helped tradies to get what they needed from their vehicles.

1995

Demand drives expansion

As Van Extra’s reputation grows, so do the orders. We move into a bigger facility to meet demand.

Purpose-built factory

Continued growth allows us to invest in our first purpose-built factory.

Producing our own seats

To fill a gap in the market, we design and produce our first transformation product – bucket seats with a quick release feature that allows vans to carry passengers or loads.

Quality control and lean manufacturing

To further improve quality and factory efficiency, we integrate TPS lean manufacturing principles and Telarc Q-base quality control systems into our production system.

2007

Moving into mobility adaptations

Recognising the need for mobility solutions in the New Zealand market, we begin designing and implementing vehicle adaptations that cater for wheelchair transportation.

2010

From Van Extras to Auto Transform

The name Van Extras no longer fits our business accurately, so we rebrand as Auto Transform – a name that encompasses every aspect of vehicle customisation.

2013

Scanning spaces in 3D

Auto Transform has always embraced new technology when it has proven benefits. The acquisition of our first 3D scanner, to accurately map interior spaces and exterior panels, is one example of our technological advancement.

2014

Our biggest transformation yet

As part of our rebrand, we relocate to a massive built-for-purpose factory and office complex in Wiri. The new premises match their purpose perfectly to support quality assurance and quick turnaround.

2018

New product warehouse

Auto Transform continues to grow, so we add a second shift to our manufacturing operation and build a warehouse for stock. Being able to store more products and materials on site further lifts our ability to meet demand.
