A local land development, civil construction and quarrying company, Wharehine, has purchased Holcim NZ’s 50 per cent shareholding in Millbrook Quarry, located in the Whangaripo Valley, Wellsford.
The purchase results in Millbrook Quarry being 100 per cent owned by Wharehine.
Wharehine is a New Zealand owned business with strong regional ties to the Rodney area and employs about 100 staff in Rodney.
Wharehine managing director Rob Gibson says the purchase reaffirmed Wharehine’s commitment to Millbrook Quarry and the North Auckland aggregate market.
“The Millbrook resource is a very high grade aggregate, and if managed correctly this significant resource has the potential to supply the aggregate needs of the Auckland region for many generations ahead,” he said.
