The Lattey group of companies was originally established in 1946 as Hawke’s Bay Asphalts Ltd. In 1957, the concrete business units of Hawke’s Bay Asphalts Ltd were separated and established as P. B. Lattey Ltd. In subsequent years, the company developed its breadth of experience in Clive Bridgeprecast manufacture, bridge construction, piling, pumping stations, and concrete based civil projects. Hugh and Cheryl Lattey purchased the company from Hugh’s father in 1986 and altered the company name to Lattey Civil Engineers Ltd in 1995. Mark and Mike purchased the business as a going concern in 2012 and formed a new company, Lattey Civil & Precast. Today the company comprises precast manufacture and erection, crane hire, structural steel and civil projects divisions.
