The Civic Contractors business began back in 1987 and was founded by Paul Sinden. The business remains 100% NZ owned and continues to grow and extend its range of services throughout New Zealand.

Today we have over 200 full-time staff and operate from four depots across the North Island – Auckland CBD, Otahuhu, Hamilton and Wellington.

We utilise the best equipment and ensure it is fit for purpose. Our fleet of over 200 vehicles range from mopeds to 10,500l Vacuum trucks. We continue to develop and invest in the latest and best equipment for the job.

We understand our environmental responsibility as a firm and believe we are leaders in our industry when it comes to environmental and sustainability initiatives. Initiatives implemented such as the use of electric equipment through to using recycled paint, allow us to minimise the impact on the environment.

We service a number of clients throughout New Zealand, pre-dominantly local councils however we service many commercial clients through our broad range of capabilities. We provide services in greater Auckland, Waikato, Hamilton, Wellington, Porirua, and Kapiti.
