Fulton Hogan

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.
