Our Story

At McLeod, we're a family-owned business with a proud history dating back to 1995. Our blue cranes and white trucks are a familiar sight in the Bay of Plenty and increasingly throughout the central North Island, providing top-notch crane, hiab, transport, and drilling rig logistics services.

Our goal has always been to lead the industry, and this determination has driven our growth and earned us a reputation for absolute operational reliability and personalized service. Our three depots in Mt Maunganui, Hamilton, and Taupo serve customers in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato regions, and our reach extends even further to support customers' more distant needs.

Our values, centered on building and maintaining customer relationships, have remained unchanged since our establishment. They're reflected in our commitment to providing the highest level of customer service, which includes value for money, promptness, efficiency, and up-to-date equipment operated by highly skilled professionals.

Safety is always a top priority at McLeod, and this is reflected in our numerous awards, including being named Winners of the New Zealand Best Health and Safety Initiative for a Small Business in 2012 and finalists for industry leadership in 2014, 2015. Our team of experts is always ready to provide expert, trained, and experienced advice and guidance throughout all stages of your project.

With a long history of success, McLeod is managed by Scott McLeod, Peter McLeod, and Phil Hutchinson, who are proud to continue the traditions set by our founder, Curly McLeod, who passed away in 2012. We're committed to listening to our customers and constantly striving to exceed their expectations.
