Background, Vision & Values

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

Today we have almost 300 full-time staff and operate from four depots across the North Island – Auckland CBD, Otahuhu, Hamilton and Wellington – servicing local councils and commercial clients.

We understand our environmental responsibility as a firm and believe we are leaders in our industry when it comes to environmental and sustainability initiatives. We’re constantly looking to innovate in the equipment we use, from investing in electric vehicles through to using recycled paint.

We continue to develop and invest in the latest and best equipment for the job. Our fleet of more than 200 vehicles ranges from mopeds to 10,500l vacuum trucks.

Reacting to local needs with commonsense solutions, we help clients meet and exceed ambitious sustainability targets, whilst ensuring best value for money at all times. Where required, we’re also able to assist with performance indicators, reviews, audits and inspections.
