New Zealand Contractors’ Federation and Roading New Zealand to become one industry body
Members of the New Zealand Contractors’ Federation (NZCF) and Roading New Zealand (RNZ) have voted unanimously to integrate the two organisations into one industry body.
The organisations have adopted a new name, Civil Contractors New Zealand, which will come into force on 1 September.
NZCF Chief Executive Jeremy Sole, who will lead the merged organisation, said the move would provide a single coherent voice representing the entire spectrum of services provided by New Zealand’s civil construction industry.
Mr Sole says, “It will avoid duplication of resources and enable us to focus on representing our membership and carrying out our responsibilities to local and central government and New Zealand Inc more effectively.
“The work that our industry does underpins economic development for the country as a whole. I look forward to our new organisation providing an even more effective service and continuing the significant legacy of these two industry bodies in New Zealand.”
