  • About Us

  • Kyle Butt, and his childhood friend Bjorn Cowdrey, have always had an interest in cars, motorbikes, and the automotive industry in general.

    After working many years in workshops of other businesses in Marlborough, they saw an opportunity to offer a wide range of vehicle servicing and repairs at a high standard at a very reasonable price.

    In 2013 they partnered to form Westwood Mechanical.

    In 2018 Bjorn left and followed an interest in other business opportunities, although both still remain very close friends with a wide range of mechanical knowledge often shared between them.

  • Our Team Members

  • Kyle Butt, Owner

    Kyle Butt of Westwood Mechanical in Marlborough NZ

    After finishing college, Kyle became employed at Blenheim Toyota as a general hand, which lead to a position in the workshop and eventually an apprenticeship. He spent six years in the workshop before moving to a position in the parts department, and then to the role as Service Advisor.

    Kyle left Blenheim Toyota with training in multiple areas and a NZQA qualification.

    Since 2018, Kyle has been the sole owner of Westwood Mechanical, continuing to build it up.

    After 10 years trading in Colemans Road, Kyle found the opportunity to purchase and expand the business into the new Westwood Business Park, and now Westwood Mechanical is running out of a new built-for-purpose shop in Ruesink Street.

    Kyle shares his life with a wife and a beautiful son, enjoying semi-rural living on a lifestyle block where his wife breeds her miniature horses.
