About Vertech New Zealand

Vertech Australia, NZ, and USA deliver a comprehensive array of inspection, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and maintenance packages all underpinned by innovative specialist access systems.

Our group is made up of complementary and specialist service providers including; Geo Oceans an industry leader in Mini-ROV IRM and subsea inspection services, Sonomatic who is recognised as a global leader in specialised NDT, both topside and subsea; and Abseil Access a specialist infrastructure, geotechnical, and demolition provider located in New Zealand.

Our ‘people first’ philosophy requires our team to actively practice and promote the Servant Leadership methodology. Servant leaders share power, listen to others, focus on the needs of the employees, and help the team to perform as effectively as possible while building a sense of community and ownership.

We draw our organisation charts upside down to reflect our belief that leadership’s role is to serve the business and to devolve power as close as possible to the frontline and our clients. By implementing this model, we multiply the leadership capability of the organisation and increase human potential in order to better serve our clients.

Health, safety, and environmental excellence

Vertech Group branded hard hat.

At Vertech our most important values are quality and the care we show for each other, our clients, and the environment. Accordingly, the highest standards of health, safety and environmental responsibility are prioritised throughout the business and in the delivery of our services.

The nature of our core business is inspection & testing, specialist maintenance, and specialist access in a wide range of sectors. This means it is absolutely essential that we deliver our services with safety, consistency, and reliability with no exceptions.

Vertech is committed to a safe and healthy working environment and consistently strives to improve not just our own safety performance, but those of our partners and peers. We work closely with our employees, partners, and clients to reinforce our positive culture, values, and HSE commitments.

Maintaining and evolving this commitment to safety is a key part of our business culture and we will continue to work closely with employees, clients, and stakeholders in order to maintain our outstanding record of incident-free operations.
