Fieldwork Group Ltd is a company servicing the Construction, Mining & Energy sectors predominately throughout Australia, New Zealand and PNG with products ranging from general civil, survey, geological and exploration consumables, large water storage tanks, PDC drill bits, and more recently a new product for building roads, drill pads and many other types of infrastructure over poor soils or where quality aggregate is scarce or expensive to obtain. A proven supply chain over many years gives us the ability to be a key part of your project wherever it may be in the world.
In year 2000 our Family owned business, Forest Lumber, was sawmilling on the West Coast of the South Island, New Zealand, supplying high grade timber predominately to the American Market.
Forest Lumber was approached by a local mine with the possibility of supplying construction stakes for their surveying work. It was an opportunity not to be missed and the potential in this field was quickly realised.
Shortly after this, we started a new business under the name of Fieldwork Supplies and a range of product like aerosol paints, boundary pegs and a range of hardware were introduced to cater for Surveyors, Contractors and Mines.
More staff was added, and initially marketing throughout the local area and then into surrounding areas which naturally spread into the North Island as the company quickly grew into a “One Stop Shop” for Surveyors, Contractors, Mines, Environmental contracting companies and a whole raft of other industries that sought products for their projects.
The fast growth continued and is still continuing as customers appreciate the service and quality of our products. We cannot stress the value of service enough.
Because of our commitment to this, word of mouth quickly spread throughout the industries that Fieldwork Supplies was a company that was committed to their cause.
Word of mouth has been a huge contributor to our growth and through that avenue; Fieldwork Supplies started servicing the Islands, and then the Australian market.
Fieldwork Supplies is still growing at a substantial rate as we add new products regularly, accompanied by an ever increasing customer base as referrals from satisfied customers are passed on to others.
Our product range has increased dramatically from our humble beginnings to include things like specialised offshore spill response products, exploration products and drill bits to add to our one-stop-shop concept.
Fast forward to now, Fieldwork Supplies (as of Jan 2013) has become Fieldwork Group Ltd so we have a overall brand to our many activities. Fieldwork Group is still a family owned and run business based in Westport but are opening a branch in Auckland starting Feb 2013 to help service the civil and survey business in that area.
We have utilised our excellent working relationship with our service providers like Mainfreight International for imports, exports and palletised goods internationally, Courier Post for hardware items and DHL for our worldwide customers, to provide a high quality service globally by utilising logistics centers in strategic places to distribute high moving products.
