About Us

Rob Pitchforth and Carolyn Millington established Steamworks NZ Ltd in 2008, launching into the New Zealand market quality Italian steam cleaning machines.

Steam is fast becoming an alternative to traditional cleaning methods, reducing the amount of water and chemicals and decreasing the time and cost of cleaning jobs.

Steamworks® provides sales, training and support services to the healthcare, hospitality, food processors, transport, leisure and commercial cleaning sectors.

Our Mission

To contribute to a change in attitude within organisations around ‘green’ or ‘environmentally friendly’ cleaning techniques and practices, and to assist them in achieving this goal.

Our History

Rob Pitchforth and Carolyn Millington are the founders of Steamworks NZ Limited. Steamworks® has been supplying and servicing Steam cleaners since 2008.

Being based in Wellington provides us with a central point for distribution around New Zealand.

Rob comes from a Contracting background in Ceramic tiles. This was the reason he got into the steam business- to find a solution to clean tiles without harsh chemicals. The early applications for using steam were in domestic and light commercial, however, over time our research and work with customers has identified other industry applications, and steam is now used in many other industries for a successful, cost effective, chemical free cleaning outcome e.g. food processing industry, medical/scientific research.

Both Rob and Carolyn have extensive knowledge of cleaning solutions using steam in domestic, commercial and industrial situations. The Steam machines that we sell are all Italian made and we hold spare parts in Wellington to enable fast service and support to the many valued customers of Steamworks NZ Limited.
