Our Story

Aotea’s story reaches back over 50 years and has evolved through a mix of opportunity, focus, teamwork, work ethic and visionary leadership at each step in our evolution.

From our early days in the 1960's, to our name change in the 70’s, early growth in the 80’s, change of ownership in the 90’s and a philosophy which has supported significant growth and expansion, through to today. Our story is one of shared success by harnessing the power of teamwork, innovation and leadership. 

We have built a collaborative group of companies that service the entire country as one by operating as a team, whilst ensuring that there is a local focus, quality service, values and the community are at the forefront; because our local people are the owners of their local businesses.

Nationwide capability by delivering excellence locally, everywhere and every time.
