OUR STORY

SINCE OUR BEGINNINGS IN 1941, THE SAVORY BUSINESS HAS BEEN FRAMED BY FAMILY VALUES, TRUST AND HONESTY.

The Savory Group was founded by Sir Reginald Savory in 1941 to provide homes of distinction thriving in the post World War II rebuilding of the New Zealand economy. With the growth of manufacturing from 1950 to 1980, the company moved into the commercial market with the construction of industrial, retail and office developments.

Savory has moved forward with the times but still maintains essential traditional features such as proven Site Managers who are builders and remains one of the few large construction companies that still have a waged labour force and on-going apprentice programme. The Savory Group employs over 100 staff, upon which we build our labour force to suit a changing market.

BUILDER OF CHOICE

SAVORY ASPIRES TO BE THE BUILDER OF CHOICE FOR OUR CLIENTS, OUR CONSULTANTS, OUR SUBCONTRACTORS, OUR SUPPLIERS AND OUR PEOPLE.

Fair and reasonable and non-adversarial is our approach to business. We treat all our business stakeholders with decency and respect and work through issues together.

Savory has quietly built solid relationships with a wide range of New Zealand businesses, organisations and educational institutes which is a direct reflection of the company's integrity that we're so proud of. Savory is a construction company that speaks through its actions.

FINANCIAL STRENGTH

FINANCIAL STRENGTH IS ONE OF THE MOST CRITICAL ELEMENTS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOSING A CONSTRUCTION PARTNER.

Savory provides financial surety for our clients and their financiers. We have no external debt and we maintain a policy of profit reinvestment and working capital management to ensure our balance sheet remains equivalent with the size of our business.

ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH & SAFETY

SAVORY HAVE THE REPUTATION YOU CAN RELY ON.

As we have grown and developed over the years, so too has our awareness of the enormous benefits that accrue through fostering a strong ethos that promotes a positive health and safety culture and environmental awareness whilst establishing clear expectations, responsibilities and standards.

We are committed to achieving zero accidents and incidents and, as part of this commitment, we expect all our employees to take responsibility not only for theirown safety, but for any person working on, or coming into contact with our activities.

As a group, we strive to ensure that our activities cause no lasting harm to the environment and support the sustainable development of communities in which we live and work. We help our clients build projects that improve people’s lives, while preserving the environment and continuing to provide value to both their businesses and their stakeholders for generations.

We continually seek new and better ways to do things by identification and implementation of innovative processes to ensure our Quality Management System provides our clients with a product built specifically to their high standards.
