When we look back over 35 years we’re proud to say we’ve been pioneers, innovators and leaders. There have been major changes to technology and techniques in the industry and we’ve played our part in many of these initiatives.
We’re not the first company to say we have a can-do culture. Our version is saying something and doing it, ‘no buts or if only’, staying power and not running for cover.
Our culture has other fundamentals – unity, warmth, accountability, trust and integrity. We believe that when we practice what we preach with each other, we’ll deliver the best outcomes for our clients. That is the Abergeldie Harker Way.

We want to be the market leader and become the underground constructor of choice. But we know not to lose sight of where we’ve come from and what we stand for. Check out our Principles below.
We believe that passion is a source of energy and enthusiasm.
We believe that forward thinking ensures we get the best out of ourselves.
We believe that teams with unity of purpose and a shared vision are unstoppable.
We believe that success is a result of an absolute focus on excellence.
