“Strong companies come from strong foundations”
For more than 60 years, H.G. Leach & Co. has been part of the fabric of the Thames Valley region. The small drainage and dragline business that the late Harry Leach and his sons, the late Merv and Bruce Leach, started in 1948 has grown and expanded into the successful quarrying and contracting business it is today. Merv’s two sons Graham and Warwick along with their families, now head the family business and are proud to continue the legacy and significant contribution the company has provided, and continues to provide, the region in terms of:
- Commercial services
- Essential primary commodities
- Support for non-commercial and community activities
The company operates three quarries:
- Matatoki near Thames
- Waitawheta near Waihi
- Tahuna near Morrinsville
We also operate a large aggregate sales yard at Tirohia near Paeroa.
Experience, hard work and best practice underpins our success. We are an efficient and innovative quarrying and contracting business with a diverse range of skills, multiple supply sources, flexible transport options and modern, reliable equipment.
The company’s regional responsibility is complemented by its responsibility to the quarrying and contracting industry. We are proud members of the:
- Aggregate and Quarry Association of New Zealand
- New Zealand Road Transport Federation
- Employers and Manufacturers Association
