Originally started by Zane Rowe and his family in 2011, ZMR Aggregates began as a small operation extracting and processing metal from the Rangitikei River at the edge of the Rowe farm. Sadly, Zane passed away in 2014 and his youngest son Marshall, together with Ray and Fiona Reid from Reids Transport Ltd, took over the reins and began to further develop the niche quarry.
Early in 2018, the pending the birth of his first child signalled a change for Marshall so from April 2018 Ray and Fiona took full ownership of the quarry. With Marshall’s departure, Ray and Fiona have employed Steve Garwood as their Quarry Manager. Steve is an A-Grade Quarry Certificate Holder and has over 23 years in the industry with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Steve, along with Rob Southwood and Craig Doyle, make up the friendly team at ZMR.
Our focus: improving the range and quality of product available to our customers
As part of the company’s growth strategy, a new screening plant has been purchased in order to streamline the production of sand and stone. During June and July 2018, the site saw the delivery of a Metso Mobile Scalping Screen and a Metso Lokotrack Mobile wash screen. These machines, together with the existing plant, now produce some of the region’s top aggregate products. Understanding the importance of being able to provide an outstanding product, together with great customer service, is key to ZMR Aggregates’ core business values.
