The Fleet

Modern, efficient and well-maintained, the HG Leach transport fleet has the right vehicles for a variety of jobs.

Effective cartage is more than just moving product from A to B. 
It’s about making best use of schedules, backloads and alternative transport methods, and minimising environmental impact.

Meeting needs fast

HG Leach & Company Limited has an extensive road fleet for transporting aggregate. Ranging in size from 8 tonnes to 30 tonnes, the fleet is in constant operation across the North Island, moving aggregate from the Thames Valley quarries to projects in Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton and the Coromandel.

Clients gain significant advantage from the company’s efficient fleet practice. While urgent deliveries can be accommodated, they are not usually required thanks to the company’s strategic location. Transport schedules to major centres are regular, and backloading is used extensively to ensure efficient transport to these.

On-site service and workshop facilities

The HG Leach heavy equipment fleet is taken care of by dedicated maintenance staff based at the Tirohia site.

To ensure all equipment is running at optimum capacity, the extensive workshop facilities are staffed by qualified, certified diesel mechanics and certified fitter welders, plus lubrication staff.

Plant and heavy equipment is vital to effective operations. Having the right gear for the job contributes to cost savings, health and safety benefits and increased productivity.

The days when quarrying work was carried out with a shovel and a belt driven crusher are long gone. Today’s quarries and landfill operations require plant and equipment that is technologically advanced, safe and comfortable for operators. Modern, well-maintained equipment not only aids production, it also assists in achieving environmental objectives by minimising noise and maximising output.
 HG Leach and Company Limited invests heavily in quality mobile and fixed plant and equipment, including specialised and custom-built equipment as required.

Most equipment is used on-site at HG Leach quarries and waste sites; however, mobile gear is also used for outside contracting work during periods of low demand in the quarries.
