The Porter Group was established in 1945 when the late Arthur Porter began building roads and winning civil engineering contracts in
New Zealand. Arthur began importing Heavy Construction Equipment and Construction Equipment Parts, establishing the Porter Group
name and laying the foundation for the Group’s core business - supplying Heavy Construction Equipment through sales and hire.
Today, every division within the Group supports the core business, and this clear focus is a key to the Group’s continuing success.
Porter Equipment sells world-leading brands of new & used Construction Equipment, and has comprehensive after-sales divisions
for servicing and parts (Porter Mechanical & Porter Parts). Porter Hire rents Construction Equipment from smaller machine
requirements right through to all heavy construction industries. Porter Finance provides a full range of Construction Equipment
Porter Equipment's world-leading brands, include Hyundai Tracked and Wheeled Excavators, Wheel Loaders and Skid Steer Loaders; ASV Track & Skid Steer Loaders; Furukawa Rock Breakers; Madill Feller Bunchers and Swing Yarders; Terex Gen-10 Dump Trucks/Articulated Haulers; and NC Site Dumpers. Porter Hire also stocks the popular brands of CAT & BOMAG.
The Group owns 50 retail locations across New Zealand, Australia and the USA, and is now one of the largest privately owned industry identities in Australasia.
