Higgins Concrete is a family owned company made up of a team of 80+ employees providing quality concrete and service across the lower North Island and upper South Island operating with over 60 concrete and aggregate trucks and tankers.
We have been involved in many large projects around our regions including the new Wildbase Recovery Centre and Manawatu Toyota extension in Palmerston North, the Bowen Campus in Wellington, and the Olive Estate Lifestyle Village in Nelson.
As well as our involvement in developments throughout our regions, we enjoy being a part of our communities whether it be through sponsorships, participating in local events and fundraisers, or helping out around community where we can.
In February 2018 the Nelson region was struck by two cyclones, causing massive damages and flooding. With the plant shutdown due to severe flooding and a power outage, our staff sprung to action – giving away sand delivered by our concrete trucks to fill sand bags around town and working with Police to transport stranded kids in our loader from nearby a child care centre. These actions were later recognised by Concrete NZ Ready Mix, awarding Higgins Concrete Nelson the 2018 Extra Distance Award.
Over the past few years we have joined forces with Counties Ready Mix in Auckland and Prenters Ready Mixed Concrete and Aggregates in the Manawatu region, growing our team to over 140.
