Fulton Hogan has recognised one of the company’s beloved members and a family legacy at its Christchurch quarry.
The company’s Roydon Quarry has been given a new road name for the road into the quarry. Customers and employees will now drive along ‘McDowell drive’, which is paved with a rich history.
Allan McDowell was a major presence in the Canterbury quarrying industry and the father of Fulton Hogan’s current chief operating officer construction, Justin, and grandfather of new Fulton Hogan employee, William.
“Fulton Hogan is a family company and it’s fantastic to see new generations coming through,” Allan said.
“Quarrying was my game, Justin started in the quarry and hopefully William will take up some role in quarrying or engineering in Fulton Hogan.”
At the unveiling of the new road, Allan was described as ‘the godfather of quarrying in Canterbury’ in reflection of his impact on the industry.
Justin McDowell said he and the family were very proud of Allan’s achievements in the quarrying industry.
“This quarry is a fantastic addition, and we are very proud and humbled about the naming today,” he said.
