Corporate & Business Sector

Fulton Hogan Ltd

In Dunedin in 1933, Jules Fulton and Bob Hogan teamed up to start their own contracting business. Times were tough, and they wanted to play a part in building a prosperous country. Through strong teamwork and a desire to get things done, they created the foundations of a company that continues to do good work today. Fulton Hogan employs more than 7,800 people across New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific. We continue to enjoy strong support from both of our founding families as major shareholders in Fulton Hogan. We’re also very pleased to say that over a quarter of our people are shareholders in our public non-listed company.

Strong leadership is an important part of being a successful and enduring infrastructure business. Our Board and leaders provide governance and direction so that together we can achieve our vision – being in, connecting and caring for communities.

We’re all about keeping it REAL
Energy & Effort
These are the values at the core of everything we do.

We see sustainability as the only way to do business. That’s why we invest in the communities we work in, bridging gaps and creating economic value. It’s our way of improving the world we’ll live in tomorrow.

We care for the communities we operate in. Fulton Hogan and our people donate time, money and services to strengthen our communities. Through our partnerships we support wellbeing, diversity, environment, education and innovation.

JJ’s takes on multiple apprentices every year and it is a career path that is significantly different to that of diesel mechanics even a few years ago – modern day tractors are some of the most complicated pieces of machinery on four wheels, we offer a great work environment, field and workshop based positions, overseas factory training programs, medical insurance, an annual exchange program with one of the largest tractor companies in the UK, great remuneration, and a social club that is second to none.

Stabicraft Marine Ltd

In 1987, in a backstreet workshop in Invercargill, Stabicraft was born with the development of the first rigid hulled aluminium boat – a Stabicraft 3.5 dinghy called the Ally Duck.

Over 30 years have passed since that first boat. In that time we have grown significantly producing around 1000 boats every year right here from Invercargill and solidifying our position as market innovators and leaders. Today our boats can be found all over the world.

Stabicraft didn't become New Zealand's largest trailer-boat manufacturer by chance. It has been built by our people with their perseverance and commitment to exceptional quality. 

We currently have a team of around 140 people in a range of roles including welders, skilled tradespeople, designers and  other professional roles.

Entry level manufacturing roles are usually into our final assembly team who are responsible for fitting out the boats doing glazing, installation of marine electrical and plumbing systems, cabin linings and various other boat systems and fittings.  It’s ‘hands-on’ work which is great for practical people who enjoy getting stuck in and working as part of a team to produce an awesome product.

At Stabicraft we have a focus on growing talent within our business and currently have 18 apprentices all working towards qualifications in boat building which includes the full process of welding through to boat fit out and finishing.

With the NZ Marine industry being NZ’s largest non-primary manufacturing based industry, now is a great time to launch your career with Stabicraft!  Learn more about our fantastic boats, and apply for roles at
