The project involved the replacement of the existing Chiller located above the Events Cinemas at St Luke’s, the job took several weeks of planning as well as engineering of new PFC Channel beams that need to span the length of the existing plinths these needed to be precisely made to suit the new Trane Chiller that was to be installed complete with new Seismic Mounts. In addition to the engineering & planning the time frame to complete the project was less than 48 hours, to add there was an existing Gantry that had to be removed then reinstated in order to get the crane into position to complete the lift. Thanks to a huge team effort from all Chillex staff and subcontractors – NZ Crane, Machinery relocation’s, DCP, Carson Electrical, CTS, Qwerty & Pacific Insulation and assistance from the consultants at Agile and Scentre Management from St Luke’s the job was completed without an issues. Another successful Chiller replacement.

G-Force are the current North Harbour Div 1 Men’s champions, a title they have held for 3 consecutive seasons.  They have had another great start to the season with 5 wins, scoring 40 runs for and only 8 runs against, having play 3 of their 5 games this season on the world-class Rosedale Park skin diamonds. 

In September this year Myles Tibbits father (G-Force catcher), Ray Tibbits, passed away.  He was involved with North Harbour and NZ Softball for many years and was instrumental in the redevelopment of Rosedale Park skin diamonds and stadium for the 2013 Men’s Softball World Cup.  To honour Ray’s contribution to North Harbour and NZ Softball, a ceremony was held before G-Forces game against Bandits on 9 November 2019, naming the scoreboard on Freeman Field (Diamond 1) in his honour. 

The game against Bandit was one of the toughest games G-Force has had this season, with a G-Force playing with lot of emotion.  The boys were proud to play hard and takeout the game 4-1, on such a special day for the Tibbits whanau.

This week G-Force take on Navy on Diamond 3, Rosedale Park at 4pm

TAEKWONDO CHAMPIONS

in Our People by HeidiK Comments are off

Congratulations to the Arataki Taekwondo Club from Henderson, Auckland who attended the TUNZ North Island Taekwondo Championships held at the TSB Stadium in New Plymouth on 30 March 2019.  This was the first time the club has entered a tournament having only been established in July 2018.  Of our eleven competitors entered seven had never been to a tournament previously let alone competed.

The day started with the team arriving at the Stadium at 8 am.  The first hour was utilised by the competitors to warm up and the coach to critique the technical side of Poomsae (patterns) performance.  The traditional welcome was held with all of the teams and then the competition got started.

Poomsae was the first event to be conducted and we had six competitors entered.  All of them performed well but the competition was strong.  Four of our competitors managed to medal with 3 silver and 1 bronze medal collected with 3 of these being first time competitors.

Fighting was up next and this event always generates a lot of passion from the competitors, coaches and supporters.  Again we had a number of first timers but all of them and the seasoned fighters performed well.  One pool of 4 had 3 of girls competing against each other with 1 of them achieving gold and another bronze.  Another pool had 2 sisters competing in it with them both making the final and this was a hard fought grudge match fought in great spirit.  Overall fighting competitors collected 2 golds, 5 silver and 1 bronze.  A  fantastic  result given the high number of first time fighters.

I am extremely proud of the effort, team work and comradery shown by the whole team and we are determined to do better at the next tournament.

Of course none of this would have been possible without the generous support of the Chillex Group of Companies who ensured all of our competitors were safe and well protected with the correct safety equipment.  On behalf of the team and all of the parents and supporters I would like to sincerely thank the Directors and Management team of the Chillex Group of Companies for their support and encouragement for the Arataki Taekwondo Club.

Great Team work guys – looking forward to seeing what you all do next year!!

The challenge was set down by A.E Smith for a head to head Go-Kart Challenge with the undefended Chillex Racing team which was held down at Hampton Downs.
A big thank you to Gripple for organising and sponsoring this event between the two companies and for putting on a spectacular BBQ afterwards and a few cold ones. Everyone had a great day – especially the Chillex Team as we kicked A.E. Smith butts and won yet again the Go-Kart trophy. Bring it on again next year!!

ANNUAL FISHING TRIP

in Social Events by HeidiK Comments are off


A group of 13 intrepid Chillex members were given the awesome opportunity to go on a fishing Charter with Ultimate Charters aboard the Koru. The Charter left Westhaven on Saturday 29th of September and the team were taken out to some great fishing spots for the day. There was plenty of cold ales and food, resulting in the group enjoying both the fishing and entertainment. Overall the day was another great way for the team to bond and get to know each other outside of work. Definitely something we would all recommend doing more of in the future. The only pity was the fishing stories were bigger than the fish we caught!!
On behalf of the group we would like to thank Chillex for a great day.

Well done to Loni for coming out of his time and passing his HVAC apprentice. What better way to celebrate than eating a whole pavlova and downing a huge pint of larger. Loni now sets the new Chillex apprentice record coming in at 1.24 minutes. He’s going to be a hard act to follow.
