Emergency services, including three ambulances, were called to what's understood to be a steel galvanizing factory on Gavin Street in Ellerslie shortly after eight.

St John, Fire and Emergency, and the Police all attended but have refused to give details.

Worksafe have confirmed the death and says it's making inquiries.
