While the company in its present form was founded relatively recently, the name Gibson has been associated with construction since Pat Gibson started it in 1998.
It was then known as Gibson Rural Ltd because this was the sector of building Pat concentrated on in those early years.  However, eventually the portfolio of work extended to include residential and commercial projects.
By 2013, having decided to step back from carrying full responsibility for the company Pat handed over control to Brent Bird and Blair Atkinson and in 2014 the company rebranded and established itself in a purpose built office and workspace at 11 Livingstone Brothers Lane, Te Awamutu.
Three new shareholders have joined the company and are helping to evolve it to the next level.Paula Bird is the company’s marketing manager.
She says there are several key reasons why the business is thriving. “We all share the same mindset as a construction company where we never compromise on quality.
