Mike and Ann-Marie Sinclair - Directors

Michael Sinclair - Managing Director

Michael's experience with fabrication started as young as fifteen, when he left school to do a mild steel welding course, and a stainless steel course. His first job was building truck bodies in Cambridge for a year, followed by working as a general engineer in Otorohanga, at a structural steel workshop in Hamilton, and then finally at Stewart & Cavalier in Te Awamutu, where Michael learned skills such as heavy fabrication, agricultural, and sheet metal work, pipeline welding as well as brake press operating and machining. After five years at Stewart & Cavalier and obtaining a Trade Cert in heavy fabrication, Mike transferred into the automotive fabrication industry, and while working full time in 2004, Sinco Customs was born. In 2006, Michael left Stewart & Cavalier to pursue the passion for his business.

Ann-Marie Sinclair - Director/Accounts and Marketing Manager

Ann-Marie is Sinco's director, marketing manager, and qualified accountant, and has spent the past 15 years in a variety of accounting/admin roles, and now works part-time from the workshop, and full-time as a mum to her and Mike's four children, Paige, Demi, Ashton, and Lex. Ann-Marie's key roles include marketing, advertising, sales, and all other financial tasks. Outside of the workshop, Ann-Marie enjoys fitness, time with the family, and travelling.

"Building cars is pretty much a way of life for me, as I've grown up in a family with various 1930s hot rods. Currently, I own a MK1 Capri, but I definitely appreciate any quality automobile."
