About Us

leading providers of aluminium joinery

The Company

Window Innovation was formed by Christian Frunt and Stu Hammar with a combined aluminium window industry knowledge of over 25 years and a combined building experience of over 60 years.

They both saw a gap in the market place where good old fashion service and reliability was missing. This service is the cornerstone of their business and is one of their “core values”

These two are passionate about their industry and will go the extra mile for their clients to make sure the finished product is what the homeowner is expecting.

Christian Frunt

Christian loves the building process, so much so he has built and sold the family home 10 times.

DIRECTOR

Stu has a wealth of knowledge in the aluminium industry coming from a large Christchurch aluminium joinery company where he oversaw its growth after the Canterbury earthquakes as their General Manager. When the rebuild was in full swing, building companies couldn’t afford any delays on their houses and his guiding principle is “on time, every time”. Do this right and we will always have satisfied customers
