The Huntly Quarry roughly opened in the 1940’s, owned by the Raglan County Council and operated by The Roose Shipping Company. In 1981, Stevenson’s purchased all shares off The Roose Shipping Company starting a new era for the quarry as Stevenson’s – Mercer and Huntly. Business was good as road works in the area were increasing. Unfortunately, the old plant that was there was struggling to keep up to demand and in 1999 a new plant was built to double the output from 1200 meter a day to 2500 meters.
The Quarry at Present
In late 2018, the Huntly Quarry was acquired by the Gleeson Group. The quarry is operated by Shawn Mclean who began his career with Stevenson’s Mining as a dump truck operator, working there for a number of years. Later, he joined Stevenson Huntly Quarry in 2005 and built up his quarry experience under the tutelage of highly respected former Quarry Manager; Pat Wallbank, eventually gaining his A Grade Quarry Manager’s Certificate. Now as Huntly Quarry Manager, Shawn has a team of over 25 reporting to him and is a member of IOQ NZ (Institute of Quarries) Waikato/Bay of Plenty branch.
Huntly Quarry is undergoing big growth in demand for its aggregate with the new Waikato expressway projects underway. Our new pugmill, or continuous mixing plant, is a valuable asset to us and to the contractors using its modified aggregates in roading construction. It’s a great opportunity for me. I just love my job. – Shawn Mclean
