From when the late Bob Taylor, and his wife Marlene, took on their first employee through to the present day, the Taylors have understood that the company’s development and point of differentiation is driven by its staff.

The family run business now involves a wider group of unrelated people who are treated as if they are part of an extended family.

Taylors Contracting Co Ltd began in 1971 when the late Bob Taylor and his wife Marlene bought a single Fiat bulldozer and went about the district clearing land, building tracks, roads for forestry clients, irrigation dams for horticulture and general farm water supply ponds.

Today the core business is much the same, but Taylors Contracting Co Ltd now employ over 150 staff and is based at its modern purpose built facility at Brightwater, near Nelson, New Zealand. It is a modern computer network based business using integrated design and contract management systems, GPS survey equipment, the latest soil testing equipment, and with a communications network covering over 100 machines.

Taylors Contracting Company Limited is Telarc Registered for Quality Health & Safety and Environmental. This means that the business has been independently and professionally assessed and demonstrates a commitment to perform.

Despite the growth, the business is still very much a family affair with sons Charlie and Matt Taylor managing the business. Dominant themes throughout the business are Quality, Safety, and Environmental responsibility. Taylors Contracting Co Ltd have a management system that has achieved, and is regularly audited.
