‘Kaizen’ also known as continuous improvement or a ‘change for the better’.

Kaizen is a philosophy we implement as a long term approach to our operations at Kaizen Works. We apply this as a way of life to incrementally change processes so to improve efficiencies and quality of work.

When you think of your project vehicle, race car, off roader, whatever it may be, you are always improving, adapting and modifying for a better result. We too apply this theory from the workshop floor through all levels of our company in an effort to provide the best results possible for our customers and satisfaction in the work we do.

Ash
Director, Technician & Fabricator

Kaizen Works was born through Ash’s passion for all things automotive, fabrication and business. The Kaizen philosophy of continuous improvement resonated with Ash and is something he applies in business and life in general.

Ash is passionate about his off-roading. He ran an ‘E Class Super Production’ Suzuki for two seasons picking up a prize for ‘Best Presented’ and 2nd in class in the National 4×4 trials series. He’s now working on a full space frame buggy powered by a Toyota 3SGTE to step up into the next class – Super modified. He also enjoys learning to drift in his 1JZ Soarer or playing with one of his many old Toyotas.

On the flipside Ash also has a Business Degree so knows a thing or two about managing projects and budgets.

Matt
Technician & Fabricator

Matt brings loads of fabrication, engineering, machining and mechanical experience to our team. He’s super keen to get stuck into any projects and up for a challenge.

Having built plenty of custom cars and roll cages over the years he’s a true car guy at heart. He’s actively competed in local motorsport in his self-built Mini race car and currently dabbling in an MX5 that he has built a ½ roll cage for along with his own stainless turbo manifold to help coax a few more ponies out of.

Matt is a passionate family man to his wife and young son.

Jack
Technician & Fabricator

As the youngest member of the team he brings enthusiasm by the bucket load and a willingness to be involved and learn. Don’t let his age fool you though, with multiple years already mechanic-ing and fabricating under his belt he’s an impressive young man who had also bought his first house by age 20! Impressive stuff.

He has a penchant for cars twice his age, Holdens in particular, as well as slightly more modern Nissans in the R31 and R32 variety.
