Dowsing Group Launches New Zealand Slipform Construction Business

Dowsing Group has officially expanded to New Zealand with the Group’s successful acquisition of New Zealand slipform contractor, A1 Highways. Specialising in slipform construction for major projects, Dowsing NZ is the latest in a series of acquisitions that reinforces Dowsing Group as a major provider of civil construction services. 

Building on the national reach achieved through last year’s acquisition of  Dowsing NSW and subsequent opening of Dowsing NSW, the latest move is significant in Dowsing’s expansion strategy as it strengthens the brand across Australia, and now New Zealand.

Similar to recent acquisitions, Dowsing will combine resources with the acquired company and establish a base in Auckland to service New Zealand slipform construction clients locally.

Dowsing Group Managing Director, Bohdan Dowsing, said that the opportunity to further extend our core capabilities across to New Zealand is pivotal in our company history and a natural progression for the Group’s recent growth momentum.

“We are extremely confident that by joining forces and adding the strength of our Australian slipform capabilities to the existing A1 Highways slipform operations will continue to deliver value adding services to the NZ construction market.”

The latest deal further progresses the Group’s ambitious multi-disciplinary growth strategy in becoming a leading specialised services contractor in Australia and beyond.
