Riteway Rigging and Scaffolding Limited was formed in 1994 by Robert Macdonald, John Lawless and Bruce Moore.  The founders had extensive experience in the industry, particularly in the challenging environment of Tasman Pulp and Paper Limited‚??s Kawerau paper manufacturing facility.  With Tasman‚??s encouragement they formed the company, primarily to service Tasman‚??s requirements, but also to meet the needs of other large industries where they perceived that service and competence were below their own demanding standards. 

Robert Macdonald is currently sole owner/operator of the company.

The company now employs up to 100 staff throughout the upper North Island, and their uncompromising commitment to customer satisfaction and service is certain to ensure future growth.  This dedication to customers is parallel by an unflinching commitment to occupational safety and health and an ongoing drive for improvement.

The company now sees itself as a provider of solutions as well as a supplier of services.  Design solutions are an increasing component of services provided.
