“Ultimately it is all about Passion”
From working with Nonno in his shed and Franco (Pappa) teaching him his art of pattern making in the foundry, to a purpose driven state of the art fabrication facility has been a learning journey every step of the way.
Joining the Military at 15 years old as an Army Apprentice was the grounding he needed and Raymond developed a broad range of trade skills, coupled with a clear understanding of respect and teamwork. A year abroad working and living in Italy fuelled his passion for craftsmanship, design, form and function.
Returning home he met his wife Trudie, coming from a similar strong family base and a passion for her hairdressing trade the match was made. Encouraged by Trudie they founded Bertazzo Engineered in 1996. Raymond focused on fabrication and mechanical side, Trudie focused on finances and personnel.
Driven by the never ending lust for technology, innovation and the need to always challenge the norm, Raymond and his team today look towards a better future for our industries and our nation as we all learn to work together.
When not at work you will find him in their veggie garden, open water swimming, on his bicycle or enjoying time cooking for his family.
