“The Chorus contract, following on from our recent success with the University of Canterbury, demonstrates HRL’s ability to expand our business into the fast growing New Zealand market. Our goal is to keep winning business, both new and repeat, by consistently delivering safely executed projects, on time and to budget which add value to our clients.
With the recent acquisition of Christchurch based Precise Consulting and Laboratory Limited, a leading environmental services business with a focus on laboratory analysis, HRL now has a substantial presence in New Zealand across a range of key service offerings.
We are very excited to commence our relationship with Chorus and look forward to the safe and successful delivery of this project.”
