Meet Afraz

Afraz has been with our team at A1 Kiwi cutters since November 2011.  Working in the concrete cutting industry is physically challenging and no two jobs are the same. Afraz enjoys rising to the different daily challenges that this job presents and this is one of the reasons he decided to become a concrete cutter.

Working in a friendly and nurturing environment amongst his peers has motivated Afraz to continue upgrading his skills with various courses to ensure he continues to thrive and grow in the company ensuring he becomes a better and even more effective operator within the industry. 

A drilling job for Transfield at the Hydro power station and demolishing a retaining wall for Well Connected Alliance for a motor way upgrade are two of his most favourable jobs. Here he spent 13 months working with the Hilti Wire saw – needless to say the Hilti Wall saw and Wire saws are probably his favourite piece of equipment due to their ease and efficiency of use.  On a personal level, Afraz’s passions are Rugby, especially watching the 7’s, as well as travelling as much as possible when time permits.
