About Us

Greg Robinson has been passionate about diggers since he was a little boy and has followed in his father's and uncle's footsteps by pursuing a career in the civil construction industry.  Greg started his career right out of school with TC Nicholls and then moved on to spend the next 13 years with Mike Edridge Contracting.  In 2017 he made the decision to venture out on his own and established Elite Excavations Marlborough with his wife, Carol.

Greg holds a Civil Trades Certificate as well as National Certificates in Civil Plant Operation, Civil Construction Works Culverts & Drainage Systems, Civil Works & Services and Infrastructure Works Supervision.

He is particularly skilled with graders and excavators having won two regional Excavator Operator competitions and has competed at two National Excavator Operator competitions, being placed 5th in 2013.  Following on from this he helped organise and run the Nelson / Marlborough excavator competition.

Elite Excavations also have the services of a Certifying Drainlayer, who is also a skilled machine operator, as well as an experienced truck driver as part of the team.

Our Vision


Greg's vision is to provide specialist, innovative earthworks solutions to his clients while providing top quality work at competitive prices.  This includes complying with all legislative and regulatory requirements and relevant standards.

He prides himself on being able to tackle the tricky jobs and believes that honesty and integrity go hand in hand with providing the sort of service that will have his clients coming back for more and recommending his skills to others.

Well maintained, clean and tidy gear that is fit for purpose is all part of what Elite Excavations Marlborough stands for.  Greg believes that the quality and standard of the tools say a lot about the quality and standards of the operator and the job.
