Welcome to E Hayes and Sons, Invercargill

E Hayes and Sons is so much more than just a hardware store and engineering supply shop.


E Hayes and Sons is a proud family business. We are a company built around the strong working principles which our pioneering forebears brought to Southland in the late 1800's.


With them came a rich spirit of innovation, inventiveness and hard work which has grown in reputation just as Southland itself has grown. Find out more
Since our earliest beginnings E Hayes and Sons have continued a proud family tradition of putting the needs of our customers first. We have proudly served leading Southland industries, trade customers and the general public since 1932 providing an ever changing and ever growing range of leading-brand products and services.

Our range is supported by friendly, knowledgeable staff who can assist with specialist advice and helpful service.
