Management Team

In 1992, mountain climbing enthusiasts, Martin Wilson and DJ Matheson, set up NZ ‘s first rope access company. Martin’s engineering background and DJ’s rope safety expertise were the perfect combination to ensure Abseil Access’ success during this early era of rope access in New Zealand. In 2019, Abseil Access joined Vertech Group (Vertech) who similarly were pioneers of industrial rope access and specialist access across Australia.

This acquisition underlined the values that both Vertech Group and Abseil Access share: empowerment and success of our people, safety and wellbeing of all stakeholders affected by our business, the quality of our product, and constantly disrupting/innovating traditional methods.

Our ability to react and adapt to ever-changing environments in a variety of industries reflects the ownership all our personnel take in delivering the best possible product for our clients.

With the most diverse project portfolio in the alternative access space, Abseil Access has leveraged an extremely attractive workplace culture to become the employer of choice in this sector.
