Technical Engineering Group
In 2005, having previously formed a group of multidisciplinary professionals to provide Goodman Fielder with the shared services of capital projects, process development, packaging development, machine safety, electrical safety and asset management services, Ross Norgrove founded TEG Projects. He’d found what the food and beverage industries were missing; a dedicated project management company able to provide an outsourced, flexible and professional project resource. Ross continues to lead TEG Projects as the Managing Director today.
After a successful launch with Goodman Fielder, TEG quickly became the preferred supplier of project engineering to Pepsico, Bluebird New Zealand. The word was out – New Zealand and Australian food and beverage companies now had access to affordable project management services with a reputation for high quality and successful project outcomes.
Branching Out TEG Projects
In order to better serve a growing customer base of multinational food and beverage companies, a Brisbane office was added to the fold in 2008. The Tauranga office soon followed, along with Wellington, Hamilton and Christchurch. In 2019 a Sydney branch of TEG Projects was established. During this phenomenal growth, TEG Projects has continued to build a superb team of industry- trained, practical, food and beverage project engineering professionals.
In 2011, with the increasing industry focus on machine safety, Ross formed TEG Risk and Sustainability
with Hamish Baker, to provide professional machine safety engineering consulting services. Hamish’s experience as a Senior Health & Safety Manager has been invaluable in developing a pragmatic and practical approach to machine safety and TEG Risk
has become an award-winning, leading provider of machine safety consulting engineering advice to industry. The MinRisk machine risk assessment app has been developed by TEG Risk
and has become the industry standard for safety focussed New Zealand manufacturing companies.
The TEG Projects team continues to grow with professional engineers and project managers who bring diverse technical, regulatory, and management expertise along with comprehensive knowledge of food processing operations.
We understand manufacturing best practices with hands-on, real-world experience gained on the factory floor. We work with clients to drive capital projects through the early development of the procurement methodology and project team set-up. We specialise in brownfield developments where new processes and equipment are successfully integrated into an existing facility.
