Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure was established by Mick Boyle in 1994, with its mission to deliver the complex infrastructure needed to build better communities.

Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure was established by Mick Boyle in 1994, with its mission to deliver the complex infrastructure needed to build better communities. Starting with a single office in Sydney, Abergeldie has expanded its operations throughout eastern Australia and internationally. The Abergeldie group employs near 450 people across four countries, with offices in Sydney, Brisbane, Newcastle, Canberra, Melbourne (Australia), Auckland, Christchurch (New Zealand), Newry (Northern Ireland) and Regina (Canada).

Growth since the beginning, along with more recent strategic corporate acquisitions, have won Abergeldie its recognition as a leading mid-tier infrastructure provider. The company now has expertise across an increasingly broad range of project types.

Abergeldie has developed world leading technology in blind bore shaft drilling for the mining industry, after the acquisition of Ardent Underground Pty Ltd and establishment of Abergeldie Mining in 2007. Abergeldie also has in-house design and construct capabilities for process engineering projects, particularly water-processing plants and pipe-relining, after the acquisition of John Young (Kelvinhaugh) Pty Ltd to establish Abergeldie Young Process Engineering in 2008, acquisition of Kembla Watertech to form Abergeldie Watertech Pty Ltd in 2013 and, in 2017 acquisition of New Zealand based tunnelling and microtunnelling specialist Harker Underground, which is now trading as Abergeldie Harker.

Abergeldie also saw opportunities in the steel fabrication industry, having sub-contracted out high value work of that kind on many projects for several years. In 2009, a 50 per cent stake was acquired in ASM Fabrications Pty Ltd, which specialises in the fabrication of aluminium, mild steel and stainless steel. Abergeldie acquired 100% of the business in March 2017, now re-branded as Abergeldie Structural Fabrications.

Also in 2017, Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure established an office in Northern Ireland and was awarded a contract for the reconstruction of Killeavy Castle Hotel and Wellness Centre. This is an exciting project for Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure to launch its operations in Europe. Abergeldie intends to, on the back of this project, expand its capability and deliver complex infrastructure and building projects throughout the UK and Europe.
