Tony Middleton - Production Manager
Born in Brisbane Australia and spent my first few decades in the Sunshine State, I studied Bachelor of Applied Science with a Grad. Dip. in Industrial Design. I began work as a designer both in the point of Sale and vehicle after-market industries.
Met and married my Kiwi wife, and moved to live in New Zealand in 2000.
I’ve lost my Aussie accent, but can’t yet bring myself to support the All Blacks over the Wallabies.
I have been with DE Group for 13 years.
With training and experience in designing for manufacture, I enjoy the challenge of producing products and displays which are functional, clever, and cost effective.
Along with all members of the production team, I enjoy the variety of projects we get to work on. With an enviably high staff retention, most of the team are just as experienced and capable to do anything from hanging a PVC banner and frame on poles in ground, to fine finishing details in a high level retail fit out.
I unfortunately have a fairly serious addiction to fishing, so usually plan my week-ends around when and where I can wet a line.
I also enjoy spending time with my wife and 2 daughters (which is often on the side-line of a netball court.)
