Leach has operated in the waste management sector since 1998 and has a well-established and proven track record, including an excellent Health and Safety track record
Leach & Co was established in 2018 following the Board of HG Leach & Co Ltd resolution to restructure the company into two separate companies, one focusing on the aggregates and quarrying industry and the second concentrating on its landfilling and contracting business. HG Leach & Co was established in 1952 and the company has been an active contractor in solid waste management for the last 20 years. As a result of the restructure Leach & Co was established and came into being on 3 September 2018. As part of the restructure, having undertaken close consultation with our key customers in the Wellington region, all the company’s waste industry contracts were assigned from HG Leach & Co Ltd to Leach & Co. There has been a seamless transition for all parties, and we continue to operate business as usual. As part of the restructure, HG Leach (Fiji) Pte Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary company solid waste management company has been bought by Leach & Co and forms part of our portfolio.
We have extensive expertise, experience, skills, resources as well as trans-border experience working in the Pacific since 2004, specialising in solid waste management, resource recovery, recycling, waste minimisation, transportation of waste including scrap steel and vehicles.
