Presco represents a group of companies; Presco Hire, Presco Environmental and Presco Prenail. Steve Prestidge (Presco’s founder and CEO) started out on his own in business in 1991 with Presco Electrical, an electrical contracting business. Steve’s mission was to establish a family-oriented company that would provide for his children and their families and would develop, evolve, grow and contribute to the community and charities.

By always holding true to our core values of customer service excellence, continuous improvement, and “our people are our biggest asset”, Presco’s divisions are growing as leaders in New Zealand's manufacturing of timber frame and truss, provision of equipment hire for the construction industry and specialist industrial cleaning for the food industry.
