Since our acquisition of the highly respected tunnelling and micro-tunnelling business Harker Underground Ltd in February, our New Zealand operations under the new company Abergeldie Harker Ltd have gone from strength to strength.

In March, we opened our head office in Newmarket, Auckland and have been steadily integrating the IT, financial and reporting systems into our overall management structure. This along with the employment of more than 14 new staff and rebranding our equipment has meant our first few months of operation have been very busy and dynamic.

We are currently completing numerous work in hand contracts in both the north and south islands. Additionally, we have won several new pipe-jacking contracts in the motorway corridor south of Auckland.

The wealth of tunnelling experience and knowledge held by the Harker staff combined with the broad infrastructure capabilities of Abergeldie has created an excellent foundation for providing support, management and construction of the projects proposed by NZ infrastructure owners in the coming decades, particularly in the water and transport industries.

Following the recent full acquisition of ASM Fabrications by Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure, the newly branded Abergeldie Structural Fabrications is poised to grow. It has the people, experience, systems and financial resources in place to become a more significant supplier of structural steelwork in NSW.

ASM Fabrications has been an important supply partner of Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure for over 20 years by providing most of the structural steelwork installed throughout the projects it has delivered in NSW.

Eight years ago, in recognition of the strategic importance of the relationship, Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure became 50% owners of ASM Fabrications. The fabrications workshop was relocated adjacent to the Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure head office in Regents Park NSW.

“By providing high quality steelwork at commercially competitive prices, the partnership with ASM has not been an unimportant factor in the success and growth of Abergeldie” said Mick Boyle Executive Chairman and founder of Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure.

In early March 2017 Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure reached agreement with Mukesh Handa, Managing Director and founder of ASM Fabrications to buy his 50% share of ASM Fabrications.

“The relationship with Abergeldie has been important to the success of ASM. I have felt ASM has been an important part of the Abergeldie team especially over the last 8 years. We have helped Abergeldie build award winning projects such as the V8 Supercars in Sydney and the Burrinjuck Dam upgrade near Yass. The purchase by Abergeldie of 100% of ASM is a logical evolution of our close relationship” said Mukesh Handa who will remain in the business as Operations Manager.

“The great advantage of having an in-house steel fabrication capability is that Abergeldie can be even more timely, flexible and innovative when responding to our clients’ needs” said Greg Taylor.
