H G Leach & Co. Ltd | Rural and Multi-Site Connectivity

Construction & Logistics


H G Leach & Co. Ltd is a family-owned company with quarries, contracting and solid waste management sites throughout the Thames Valley. 


H G Leach & Co.’s rural head office site near Paeroa was suffering from an unreliable, slow internet connection. It was difficult to work effectively with slow data flow between branches and poor connection quality affecting remote access.  

Taking Action

IT Partners invested time upfront to ensure they fully understood H G Leach & Co. Ltd’s connectivity needs. With this understanding, they built a solution in partnership with their sister company Lightwire, an Internet Service Provider. This solution utilised Lightwire’s extensive network of wireless towers and fibre assets in the Waikato region.

H G Leach & Co.’s Chief Operating Officer emphasised, “We have gone from having a very slow and unreliable internet connection with few realistic options available to improve, to having a fast, reliable internet connection that has made a huge difference to our business.”

The Outcomes

Having a reliable internet connection has meant remote sites can now communicate without problems – aiding efficiency and productivity. “IT Partners not only provided us with a great internet connection through their connectivity partnership with Lightwire, but they have since proactively ensured that we have access to the best possible options available and upgraded our Hamilton branch to fibre”, says Mark.
