If you are looking for contractors who really know their stuff, then look no further than Barker Contractors Ltd. Barker Contractors was started in 1980 by Michael initially with a TracGrip RM20 back hoe and a Ditchwitch R20 trencher working with local plumbing companies installing farm water reticulation systems and general farm work. Travelling and covering earthmoving jobs from the Manawatu to Gisborne, we are well known for our highly skilled operators and detail to attention. Barker Contractors has continually grown, and currently we have over 12 permanent staff working for us. At Barker Contractors, we make sure that all our staff are fully licensed and trained, with staff attending driver training programs, traffic management courses, first aid, quarry qualifications and all staff engaged in sensitive areas are police vetted. With a strong focus on Health and Safety, we implemented Hasmate to assist us with our programs and regularly run health & safety meetings and courses for all our staff. The advantage of dealing with Barkers is we empower our people to make decisions.
