About Ireland Contracting Ltd
Ireland Contracting Ltd is owned and run by Tony & Sharon Ireland with a permanent staff of around seven drivers. We run harvesters, loader wagons, balers, cultivation, planting and fertilizer spreading equipment, a digger and scoop for earthworks along with a fleet of trucks and tractors. During the busy grass and maize seasons in spring, summer and autumn our staff grows as we get experienced drivers from overseas in. We've been operating in the South Waikato, originally as Ireland & Bolt Contracting, for 30 years now. The hilly terrain provides great challenges and interesting work for us, as well as better drainage than perhaps flatter areas would have.
As well as the contracting side of the business, Ireland Contracting grows maize for sale & grass for silage bales on three properties located in Tirau, Putaruru and Tokoroa. Not only does this provide quality feed for our customers, but has the added benefit of also creating work for our staff.
Originally established in 1993 as Ireland & Bolt Contracting, the company was renamed Ireland Contracting in 2005 after John Bolt was bought out. Ireland and Bolt travelled anywhere from Bombay Hills south of Auckland to Rangitaiki on the Taupo-Napier road. Today, Ireland Contracting focuses on the South Waikato and surrounding districts, and is slowly expanding the range of services we provide.
