Downer is the largest provider of services to asset owners in New Zealand.
Our ambition is to build a better New Zealand which we do through the strength of the relationships we hold and develop. This is underpinned by our purpose and our four pillars: safety, delivery, relationships and thought leadership.
Our history in New Zealand began with the formation of the Public Works Department in 1870 and the New Zealand Post office in 1880. For over a century, we’ve been helping to shape New Zealand by successfully collaborating with asset owners to build, maintain and operate their assets with a whole-of-life approach.
We do this through the support of our highly capable, skilled and committed people and by engaging a network of trusted and long-term sub-contractors, suppliers and like-minded organisations and partners. Our 10,000 employees are looking after New Zealand from Kaitaia to Invercargill in more than 120 locations across the country.
Our work involves maintaining and renewing vital infrastructure assets that support our communities, addresses infrastructure needs, enables economic growth and extends beyond the physical assets to the wellbeing of our people and communities.
