Our three-legged stool philosophy

CENTERED IN SUSTAINABILITY 

While our group has evolved over the years, our vision has remained the same: to develop and grow sustainable businesses that support our families, but also give back to the communities we are a part of. 

We have consciously grown our group, offering services centered around our ‘three-legged stool’ philosophy when it comes to sustainability - people, planet and profit. Our focus is on longevity - for ourselves as a business, and for the organisations we service. Our offerings are geared to not only create immediate efficiencies, but also to provide enduring returns long into the future for our clients’ businesses. 

Presco sustainability
The ties that bind

OUR VALUES 

With Steve still at the helm as Presco’s CEO, each of our divisions have stayed true to our founding values. As a team, we’re guided by these key principles in how we support our customers, how we hire our people and how we reward our staff. So, no matter how we work together, you can expect trusted advice and the consistent standard of service that the Presco name was built on. 

MEET THE TEAM

Across our three areas of operation, we’ve built specialist teams, trusted for their skills, advice and commitment to getting the job done. We know it’s our people that make the difference, and we’re proud of our reputation for reliable service and workmanship. 

We’re always on the lookout for skilled people to join us. A role at Presco is a chance to work for a family-owned organisation that truly values its employees while contributing to some of New Zealand’s most important industries. 

PRESCO BOARD & SUPPORT TEAM

Behind the scenes, our business is led by an executive board. To keep things ticking, we’re also supported by a team of professionals across marketing, finance, IT, HR and QHSE who contribute critical skills across the three areas of Presco operations.
