Smith Contracting Limited is a local owner-operated business based in Upper Hutt covering the greater Wellington region and south Wairarapa. Operated by Cam and Crystal Smith the company was established in 2015 when the couple embarked on an adventure to broaden their horizons. Growing up in Wanganui and spending a lot of time on his grandparent's farm, especially during hay season, Cam knew he wanted to go into farming/agriculture work and when the opportunity arose he jumped at it. Smith Contracting was previously J R & N Berkett, owned and operated by Jeff and Noeline Berkett. They had been in the contracting game for about 55 years when they decided it was time to sell the business. Cam and Crystal purchased the business and renamed it Smith Contracting, but essentially not a lot else has changed. Glen, who was employed with Jeff and Noeline for over six years, has stayed on and continues to work for Cam and Crystal.
