About Us

Smythe Contractors Ltd was formed as a Limited Liability company in 2000, Our projects include numerous pipe installations from 50 to 900mm in diameter, up to 600m long by Directional Drilling, and 1.0 to 2.1m diameter by Pipe Jacking method.

Our American Augers DD440T is a 200 tonne pullback machine, and is capable of installing 1.0m diameter for 1.0km. Prior to this amazing machine, distances of this nature were unheard of in New Zealand!
We pride ourselves on strong and effective customer service, endeavouring to reach new levels through positive relationships and a strong collaborative approach - always discussing the best solution - from the design phase through preparation, through to the pipe installation.

This is achieved by our wealth of company resources, including the ability to provide a unique and innovation solution to your issue, the best equipment, and knowledge at the technological forefront of the industry. Maintaining excellent quality and delivery of a successful solution is the base upon which the strong "Smythe" reputation stands.

Innovation is the driver to our success. Innovation effectively brings about minimisation of client costs, increased productivity and a reduction in the environmental impact. We aim to keep all environmental impact to a minimum on all projects. Trenchless technology enables this through allowing the day to day life within the vicinity of the project to continue as normal, while also far reducing the extent of earthmovement.

Please contact us to discuss your project - our experts are happy to answer your queries and to work with you to achieve the most cost effective and successful operation.
