Michael Turley established Stylecraft Stairways in 1992 as a staircase and kitchen joiner, but as time progressed, the sole focus shifted to stairs after realizing that few others specialized in this intricate product.
“Over the years, hundreds of builders and developers in Wellington and New Zealand have placed their trust in us, forging longstanding partnerships based on the confidence they have in our service and superior quality”, he says.
Reducing production lead times with Staircon

Consequently, the company is capable of delivering a diverse range of stair solutions, whether it be stairs for terraced homes and apartments or architectural steel and high-end solid timber stairs for high-end residences across New Zealand. In the manufacturing process, they have seamlessly integrated Staircon with their CNC machines, enabling a smooth and efficient transfer of design data for production.
“This integration eliminates the need for manual data entry or interpretation, minimizing errors and ensuring that the final product matches the intended design perfectly. By investing in additional CNC machines and configuring them to Staircon, we have been able to streamline our manufacturing process, reduce production lead times and maintain the highest level of quality in our stair products”, says Michael Turley.
