It is a big year for Te Awamutu company AgFirst Engineering
Waikato, which has made huge strides since opening its doors just
three years ago.
Business owner Davieth Verheij came ‘home’ from Hamilton in2014 and expanded from a one man business to five in his Bruce Berquist Drive premises.
Next month AgFirst Engineering Waikato is on the move again to
the former Costain Engineering building in Bond Road to cope with
the growth of their business.
Mr Verheij says the business has been challenged from day one, as
the dairy pay out began to slump right as the company made
significant capital investments, including the importation of a
huge amount of effluent management product from Italy and
Denmark.
But the investment is paying dividends. Mr Verheij says the
company has projects underway from Masterton to Kerikeri,
including multiple stock water reticulation projects in the
Rangatikei, Port Waikato and Northland plus a large rural water
scheme near Wanganui.
“Stock water is a huge part of our business, this combined with
our specialist dairy effluent systems gives us a great variety of
exciting work,” he says.
And at National Fieldays 2016 AgFirst Engineering Waikato
launched the new Weta Irrigator — both in the Innovation Tent
and from their Fieldays site.
