Who is Fair Dinkum?
Fair Dinkum Sheds is a leading distributor in New Zealand of residential garages and carports, barns, farm sheds, industrial and commercial buildings and is widely acknowledged as one of the largest networks of Cold Formed Steel Building distributors in New Zealand, with a proven history of success for nearly two decades. That success is founded on always providing real value products, design and software innovation, and ongoing product development.
We are the Central Otago distributor of Fair Dinkum products and can quote and design kitset sheds, kitset garages, and kitset buildings in minutes with our hi-tech software program. All buildings are fully engineered to accommodate the region where your project will be built and standard plans can be supplied within a few minutes.
Fair Dinkum offers a wide range of colours with galvanised steel frames for strength and low maintenance. Vertical metal cladding is standard with all of their buildings but feel free to speak with us about other cladding options.
A Brief History
Fair Dinkum Sheds started out as a family owned and operated company in 1990, in rural Camden, NSW. In 1992 the company went national, establishing a successful network of distributors across Australia. More recently, Fair Dinkum Sheds have expanded the business internationally, with distributor networks across NZ, Fiji, the United Kingdom and South Africa. Since its humble beginnings, Fair Dinkum Sheds has flourished and in August 2007 was acquired by Stramit Building Products – their largest supplier and a business unit of Fletcher Building Limited.
Today Fair Dinkum Sheds is widely acknowledged as one of the largest networks of Cold Formed Steel Building distributors in New Zealand, with a proven history of success for nearly two decades.

Fair Dinkum Sheds is the only company operating in both Australia and New Zealand that is a
ShedSafe™ accredited company. New Zealand uses the same design standards and the New Zealand distributors of Fair Dinkum Sheds use the same quality tested system to supply the New Zealand market. This assures you that the designs and systems comply with the high standards set by the Australian Steel Institute. Under-engineered sheds put people and property at risk — don’t take a chance with a non-accredited company.
