Our acknowledgments are:

  • TARANAKI ROAD SAFETY WORKPLACE CHARTER – Symons Group has achieved the highest level of accreditation being ‘Excellence’: Not only is driving safety information easily accessible and well publicised, the leadership of the organisation is fully engaged in the safe driving policy and ensuring the safe driving behaviour of all employees. Mechanisms are in place to support and develop staff to ensure safe and appropriate driver behaviour.

We are also innovators.

  • We were first to utilise grapple forks for pipe movements to ensure product protection by eliminating movement and the risk of slips and spills.
  • We were first in the Taranaki region to install a three-way separator for managing waste products in a tubular servicing facility.
  • We were first in the Taranaki region to adopt the NZTA approved Safe and Fuel Efficient Driver training program.
