About Us

We, Brian & Anita Collins, started Pro Automation Ltd, a family-based business, in August 2003. We had both been working for many years in trade based industries which gave us a wealth of experience and the foundation skills to begin Pro Automation Ltd.  In particular, Brian’s experience as a Registered Electrician has been invaluable from conception.

On meeting the representative from TAU S.r.l. Italy, a relationship was created and a proud partnership with Pro Automation Ltd representing TAU Gate Automation products throughout New Zealand was formed.

A business plan was quickly produced and then in just a day we had to name our business and Pro Automation Ltd was born, with the company strapline, “Professional Automated Solutions”.

Right from the outset we decided to be “solution” based and we created a “31 Point Checklist” as a tool to allow our network of Professional Gate Automation Installation Companies throughout New Zealand to gather the relevant information on the site where the Gate Automation is going to be applied.

We supply various options of Gate Automation Systems e.g. Linear, Inground or Articulated Arm for Swing Gates and Tracked (Guide Rail) or Cantilever for Sliding Gates, each of which is suited to a specific application.  Each site requires a professional, detailed assessment to calculate which system is going to provide the best solution,” to get it right first time”.

Our relationship with TAU S.r.l. has grown from strength to strength as we have both grown with product, skills and knowledge.

Nine years on, in July 2012, we have a new website and a whole new emphasis on website based information. 

We changed our name from Pro Automation Ltd to Gate Drive Solutions Ltd to say more about what represents our core business.

Gate Drive Solutions Ltd continues to be proudly 100% New Zealand owned and operated.
Solution Based, striving to always ‘get it right first time” ….  Gate Drive Solutions Ltd is ….

… “The Driving Force Behind Your Gate!”
We look forward to being of service.
