TROW Group specialises in civil contracting and machinery hire. In an industry renowned for producing waste, it is dedicated to deconstruction and salvaging material.
There is a great deal of desire among marae, schools, churches and other community groups for the types of material that the construction and demolition industry throws away every day. In the past year, TROW Group has provided over 1000 tonnes of fixtures, fittings and furniture to community organisations that would have otherwise gone to landfill. This year it has also begun exporting good quality used furniture to schools in Tonga.
TROW Group also helps provide a career for people who could be lost in the system. It has trained, improved literacy skills and provided employment for over 1000 people. It also provides ongoing support and training in construction site health and safety.
TROW Group is a finalist in the Going Circular and Hardwired for Social Good categories of the 2017 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards.
