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.
