About McGrath Industries

McGrath Industries' Historic Product Examples

From its inception in 1964, McGrath Industries has specialised in creating mechanical handling solutions for customers with heavy lift and transfer requirements.

The Company was originally founded as V & M McGrath Engineering Ltd by the late Vincent McGrath and his wife and partner Mary. Today the Company remains privately owned and operated by the McGrath family, with son Chris McGrath and daughter Elizabeth McGrath at the helm.

We started out developing equipment for New Zealand’s timber processing industry. From there we branched into integrated mechanical handling plant for various industrial clients. We also developed a range of standard products including our own commercial elevators, residential elevators, freight hoists and disability access platforms. Our successful history provides us with a wide knowledge base found in few organisations.

Today in the New Zealand market we work with leading European elevator manufactures, supplying and supporting their product while we continue to design and build heavy freight lift equipment and other specialised mechanical handling plant. This includes our broad range of air cargo handling equipment which we supply to air freight operations throughout Australasia and beyond.
