Aitkens Concrete has been involved with the concrete and building industry in the Gisborne area for over 100 years.
Starting in 1906 manufacturing concrete roofing tiles amongst other concrete products.
In 1954 a block machine was purchased from the United States and Aitkens Concrete began to manufacture masonary blocks which we still do today.
1994 saw the first production of ready mix concrete out of the Aitkens Concrete plant, the plant has steadily increased its volume each year and today we operate 6 ready mix trucks and at the time of writing we are installing a modern computerized batching plant.
David Aitken is the current owner and managing director of Aitkens Concrete having started with Aitkens Concrete as a 22 year old trainee block layer and is still hands on within the company.
