MEET THE TEAM
Māori-owned fencing business
Maniapoto Fencing Limited is a Māori-owned, whānau-based fencing company with 2 crews currently servicing the wider King Country and Waikato region.. The business was established in 2020 by Patea Muraahi. Its initial project was a large-scale riparian planting project, involving 30km of fencing, along with two other local Māori businesses, Wai Ora River Care and Aotahi Limited. The business operates a 115hp Deutz Agrofarm ROPS tractor equipped with a Quick X46 Self-levelling loader and a Fencepro G2 post driver with a 270kg block. This equipment allows us to take on work of any size.
At Maniapoto Fencing, we pride ourselves on providing a reliable and responsive service whilst upholding the highest health and safety standards.
