Agriculture & Dairy

New Zealand is blessed in the agriculture and dairy sectors due to its climate, soil, and pristine water sources, which create the perfect environment. In the 2020 financial year, dairy industry exports from New Zealand were valued at 20.1 billion New Zealand dollars, making this industry paramount to each New Zealander and our future prosperity.

The Abseil Access team has provided specialist services to our growing agriculture industry, including grain and dairy, for over 30 years.

Our team is inherently aware that properly inspected and maintained infrastructure will enable continued benefits to Kiwi business and employment.

Dairy Fun Fact: In 2019, New Zealand was the world’s biggest exporter of Concentrated Milk (at $5.73Bn). In 2020, NZ produced about 21.9 million metric tons of milk; now that’s a lot of calcium.
