The X Span Story

Hi there,

I’m Anthony Farrelly the founding owner and managing director of X Span. At X Span we specialise in the manufacture and sale of pre-engineered steel building kitset solutions.

Following a long involvement in the steel building industry, the X Span journey started in 2012. I decided I wanted to make a real difference to the status quo of the New Zealand cold rolled steel (C-section portal frame) building industry, which was dominated by Australian-based shed companies, using lightweight inferior systems and in many cases inferior foreign steel.

I believed I could provide the New Zealand public with the Best Product at a Great Price, through forward innovative thinking and doing differently – going outside the box!

So……..after 18 months of hard slog, developing all systems necessary to launch – the X Span brand went live in October 2014.

We are an independent, family-owned business that provides kitset buildings to the New Zealand market direct from the factory to your site – which means you, the customer, have the opportunity to purchase a steel building kitset, online, at the best possible price.

Not only can you purchase at a great price, you are assured of top quality thanks to our commitment to using the best New Zealand steel. We have teamed up with a great bunch of reputable, trustworthy and long established New Zealand suppliers.

A big part of our commitment to provide the best product has been X Span’s ability to secure the rights to use the renowned and market-leading K5S® steel portal bracket system – New Zealand’s first and only BRANZ Tested and Appraised steel portal bracket system. To find out more about our K5S® system, click here.

With a strong company focus on ‘Best Product at a Great Price’, I thought why copy our competitors by limiting the use of a software design system to a franchisee, based at their display site?

This vision led to the development of our state of the art online Shed Creator, which provides anyone the ability to design their dream shed or building with ease, in their own time, in the comfort of their own home. You can learn more about how Shed Creator works by clicking here and using our Shed Creator Tutorial.

I am passionate about X Span and get a real buzz from working to create better building solutions for our customers every day. The X Span team delivers this passion for property and construction to every project – continuing our quest to become New Zealand’s number one choice for kitset steel buildings!

Outside of X Span you will find me having fun with my beautiful wife Hayley and our two boys. Please remember you can contact us with any questions about your building design needs. We’re here to help and will continue to strive to provide you with the Best Product at a Great Price!

Until next time,


Anthony Farrelly – Founding Owner and Managing Director, X Span
