The next generation of market leading dust suppression hoppers for dusty material discharge are also now under design.

The past year has also seen Page Macrae recognised for its innovative, safety-first approach.

The grapples effectively reduce risks to workplace health and safety, making a dangerous wharf-side jobs safer for staff.

The company’s engineering expertise is also being employed widely across industries including pulp and paper, power generation, processing, and infrastructure, helping clients develop sustainable, long-term solutions to their engineering challenges.

The year ahead is now led by Page Macrae’s new CEO Alan Sutcliffe. As an ex-board member since 2018, Alan is highly familiar with the company and its many facets. With 25 years of leadership and project management across multiple industries he is well versed in taking the company through its next growth phase.

In the dynamic, rapidly changing industrial scene Page Macrae’s leadership and staff are looking forward to delivering sustainable solutions from right here in Tauranga to clients across the country, and the world.
