About Us

Golden Bay have built an enviable reputation as New Zealand’s reliable manufacturer and distributor of cement products – leading the industry in New Zealand for over 100 years. We’re proud to continue to develop sustainable binder solutions for the construction industry. Our GP cement, EcoSure, already has 27% less CO2e than the ISC 2020 baseline, and we’re continuing to lead the way in decarbonisation for a sustainable future. 

Our history

Golden Bay Company started a humble beginning operating in Golden Bay in 1909, whilst the NZ Portland Cement Company were working on Limestone Island and Wilson’s Cement Co. were in Warkworth.

After NZ Portland Cement Company abandoned works on Limestone Island in 1918, moved to Portland and merged with Wilson's Cement Co, the community began to take form as we know it today. Golden Bay took ownership of the cement works – and we’ve since grown to become New Zealand’s longest standing cement manufacturer and supplier.

We’ve built a legacy as an integral part of New Zealand’s history. And our dedicated team will continue this legacy of success, well into our future. We’re proudly supporting the construction industry as it evolves, and boast the finest quality products to suit any application – commercial, residential, and infrastructural.
