As Warkworth sits on the cusp of a building boom, local companies such as Warkworth Siteworks are positioning themselves to be in the ‘right place at the right time’.
Owners Jesse Rusling and Talia Crombie say they could see there was a gap in the market for a medium-sized multi-capable earthmoving company, so they have started Warkworth Siteworks, an offshoot of their company Auckland Siteworks.
“There are plenty of small operators around, as well as big companies such as Wharehine, but not much in between,” Jesse says.
“We’ve got 10 staff and plenty of equipment to take on just about everything from earthworks, site cuts and retaining walls to demolition, swimming pools, farm dams and drainage.
We’ve got a lot of experience on board and do both residential and commercial work.
“Our gear includes 11 diggers ranging from 1.3 tonne to 13 tonne, rollers, bobcats, dumpers, truck dumper, and four-wheel and six-wheel trucks.”
Both Jesse and Talia are long-time locals who grew up in the Mahurangi.
“It made sense for us to base ourselves where we live,” Talia says. “We’ve also got Marie Johnson, another local face, running the administration side of the business.”
Jesse’s experience goes back to his days fixing and driving a digger for Snells Beach Hire. He then moved on to work for Hicks Brothers and later, Rathe Contractors.
He says he has uncovered some interesting objects over his years digging in the dirt, including cannon balls on Kawau Island and a Shell Service Station cigarette lighter that ended up being worth $6000.
