About Us

The Ian Harrington Group (IHGroup) is a privately-owned Tasmanian company that was established in 1964, initially as a road surfacing business.  Starting with just two employees, today we employ more than 130 people across a number of civil construction businesses and disciplines that operate in all parts of Tasmania.

Our strategically-located businesses across the state provide asphalt and bitumen sealing, pavement marking, installation of road safety barrier systems, asphalt manufacture and production of construction aggregate products.  We undertake large contract or smaller project and other urgent works as required, using a fleet of modern and highly specialised equipment.

We also employ a well-trained, committed, professional and permanent Tasmanian workforce that knows the state road network, our weather and local traffic conditions.  Our teams are committed to delivering safer roads for all Tasmanians and ensuring we do so in manner that ensures the safety of our own staff and the users of the road network.

IHGroup maintains an extensive, trusted network of locally-based subcontractors and suppliers.  We engage local businesses whenever possible to assist the building of a local, sustainable industry, putting the local economy first on every occasion.
