McMahon Services is an industry leading, privately owned industrial, construction and environmental services provider.

Established in 1990 by brothers David and Andrew McMahon, McMahon Services has grown from a team of 12 into an award-winning contractor across the Australia Pacific Region.

Our family business heritage and culture of innovation set us apart, fostering a commitment to developing leading edge approaches across the whole organisation that surpass industry standards.

With offices in Auckland, Wellington and across Australia we employ more than 950 staff delivering projects in capital cities, rural townships, isolated islands and in remote locations.

In 2018, McMahon Services opened our first New Zealand office

The opportunity to expand our growing operations in New Zealand began in 2017, when McMahon Services were approached to provide asbestos remediation solutions for contaminated historical vehicles, at Auckland’s Museum of Technology and Transport (MOTAT).

The project gathered local interest and soon McMahon Services were approached by various consulting firms with an interest in servicing the growing remediation marketing utilising McMahon Services as an industry partner.

Our contributions to the local asbestos industry have already been recognised by New Zealand Demolition and Asbestos Association (NZDAA). During the 2018 Demolition and Asbestos Awards McMahon Services was presented with an award for the category ‘Asbestos or Demolition Best Practice Project under $1 million’, for the Auckland Museum of Technology and Transport (MOTAT) project.
