About Us 

Rae Asphalts has been a name around town for more than 35 years.  The company was founded in 1980 by Brent Rae who identified a real need for quality earthworks in rural Hawke's Bay.  With a background in roading, topdressing and business ownership -  the necessary foundations were all there to create a well respected business which it remains to be today. 


Rae Asphalts offers a range of roading and general contracting solutions in Hawke's Bay including: preparation and sealing (driveways, tennis courts, carparks, subdivisions), farm track/yard formation, metal supply, excavation, and earthworks (house sites, foundation excavation, backfill and demolition).


Our diverse fleet includes:  3, 8 & 12 tonne diggers with concrete breaker and post hole borer, grader, off-road dump truck, forklift, rollers, loader, mobile crusher and concrete cutter.


We are qualified in traffic management and hold current Site Traffic Management Supervising accreditations  - necessary for any local government work, making us a preferred contractor in Central Hawke's Bay.  


Rae Asphalts prides itself on excellent workmanship and holds a solid reputation in the local community due to good old fashioned loyalty and word of mouth. Now with son Matt on board, the company is looking to the future to continue to provide professional roading and general contracting solutions to the region for yet another generation.

Father and son, Brent and Matt Rae.
