Building Taranaki with the best

Steve & Susie Hofmans

We are both born and bred here in Taranaki, Steve from Stratford and Susie from New Plymouth.
We’ve been in business for 15 years, but Steve has been in the building trade for over 19 years. Steve is the face of the business working with clients on a day-to-day basis, while I (Susie) look after all the administration and Health and Safety. Steve is current President of Taranaki Registered Master Builders and sits on many building related committees. This allows Steve to stay abreast of building trends and changes to building legislations.

Steve and I are extremely passionate about delivering the best possible product and strive for every project to be to an award winning standard. We’ve chosen our staff carefully and are proud to have ambitious, motivated and skilled team members on board.

When we are not working we love to be outdoors with our children. Steve and I have always been interested in the outdoors and enjoy, running, biking, Kayaking and pretty much anything that will challenge us. We’re now enjoying introducing the love of the outdoors to our two children.

Hi I’m Matt Ujdur, I’ve been with Hofmans Builders since Feb 2014. After completing my 4 year apprenticeship in 2006 & becoming a qualified Carpenter/Joiner. I have a passion for building and enjoy whatever challenges the job throw at me. Meeting new people on the job and around the region always keeps my work interesting. I enjoy fishing, camping, golf and hitting it out on the drums. Most of all the best time is spent with my two sons Benjamin and Joel and my wife Kylie.

Hi Im Lewis Green, I started at Hofmans Builders back in January 2013. Over the past couple of years I have enjoyed being part of a great team. Currently I am a couple of years into my apprenticeship. I’m learning a lot and gaining more confidence each day, which I’m loving. Outside of work I play rugby during winter and through the summer I love anything to do with the water. I also love socializing with my family and friends and once I am qualified I have ambitions to travel.
