In 1989 Bruce and Michelle Holland set up a small family business with one custom built vacuum truck designed by Bruce. While Michelle helped with accounts, phone calls and looking after their young family, Bruce was out on the road sourcing and carrying out the work. At times the five children assisted on either the truck with Dad, or with the administration side of things at home.

Over the years Parkinson & Holland has grown tremendously and no longer operates from Bruce and Michelle’s home. It has expanded to include specialist trucks and machinery, an environmental division including vacuum trucks, water blasting, hydro jetting and pipeline inspections and a civil division. This division specialises in drilling and trenching through the hard rock conditions that are commonly found throughout New Zealand.

Today Bruce and Michelle still ensure the business is running smoothly with Michelle in charge of the office and Bruce often found out on the road, operating machinery or behind the wheel of one of the trucks, mucking in with team.
