The Poltech Fleet

Line Workers Servicing Wairarapa and Beyond…

Poltech Power Works are line workers servicing the Wairarapa and beyond. We offer line solutions that are prompt, safety compliant and network compliant. As an approved major works contractor to Powerco, we provide line construction, connection and maintenance for clients large and small.

Major Works Contractors Dedicated to Full Compliance and Great Service……

Poltech Power Works was established in Martinborough in 2000 by Gray Carter and Mike Thomas.  Gray and Mike had both worked at Powerco prior to that but decided to strike out on their own.  Originally the company only carried out pole assessments, but now we provide a large range of services including power line constructions and maintenance, new power connections, underground reticulation in new subdivisions, digger hire and excavations as well as pole assessments.

Mandy Robinson joined the company in 2004 as a part-time office administrator but now is a full-time office manager and owner.  Jason Hall also joined the company in 2016 as operations Manager and became an owner in 2017. Mike Thomas retired in 2012. In the last few years, our business has experienced significant growth under our new management structure, with now 11 full-time employees.

Gray, Mandy and Jason have worked to create opportunities for the company, and when we recruit new team members we look for those qualities that support our vision and further our goals.

In May 2013 the company employed its own electrician which sets us apart from many other powerline companies.  No longer do our customers need to arrange for someone else to connect power to their property, we can do that for them ourselves.  Being a one-stop-shop is an important point of difference for us.

After starting in a small shed at the back of a house, Poltech Power Works is now based in a custom-built depot on Jellicoe Street in Martinborough, with our large fleet of vehicles easily recognisable around the Wairarapa due to their venetian red paint job!

The Heart of the Matter…

When Gray started Poltech Power Works in 2000 he wanted a company that was created by people for people.  Now we promote the following values in everything we do.

  • Respect for ourselves, respect for our company, respect for those around us and respect for our customers
  • We value opportunities, challenges and personal growth
  • We must be sincere and honest with each other
  • We must treat others as we would treat ourselves
  • …and above all Enjoy It

Encouraged by our values we have gone from strength to strength.

We pride ourselves on having a team that is highly trained, customer-focused and that works together to achieve our goals.

We embrace health and safety.  It is a core part of our culture as we want our team, and others who we have responsibility for in our workplace, to be as safe as we can make them.

We are committed to sustainability and minimising the impact of our operations on the environment.  We operate all of our facilities/machinery, and manage our resources in an environmentally sound and responsible manner.

We welcome feedback from our customers on how we can do things better.  If you would like to provide us with feedback then please ring the team on 06 306 6150 or 0800 POLTECH (0800 765 8324), or click here to use our contact form.
