ENI ENGINEERING is immensely proud to be a New Zealand-owned and operated company based in Christchurch. When the opportunity arose to begin designing and manufacturing light columns it was only fitting that these products carried a name that reflected this national pride.

“ACRUX” short for Alpha Crucis is the brightest star within the Southern Cross constellation. A symbol that defines New Zealand’s place in the world. Hence the Acrux Lighting Column was named.

We are manufacturing all styles of lighting columns.

Our lighting columns are made from galvanised steel and range from 5.5 meters in height to 11.3 meters. Our design team at ENI Engineering is able to work with you to design project-specific lighting columns and we have the flexiblity to customise. We specialise in mitred and radius outreaches for these columns, however we can customise to your design needs.

Our 11.3 meter lighting columns have been approved by the New Zealand Transport Agency and are manufactured in 2mm thick galvanised steel. These specifications mean these lighting columns are street-light grade and can be used in urban lighting situations.
