AdvanceQuip and its Divisions Embrace a New Era with Cutting-Edge Headquarters in Gore

The New AdvanceQuip HQ at 7 Saleyard Rd, Gore will also house Gore Machine Hire and Earthworm Attachments.


AdvanceQuip, a leading name in the industry, is thrilled to announce the conclusion of a transformative chapter in its journey, marked by the relocation to its state-of-the-art headquarters at 7 Saleyard Road, Gore and the finalisation of its agreement with MIMICO for the acquisition of AdvanceQuip’s Construction Equipment Sales & Support business. 

It is important to note that the acquisition excludes the Earthworm Attachments and Gore Machine Hire businesses, which will continue under the ownership of AdvanceQuip and the McLean Family. This strategic decision has been made to ensure that focus can be put into further growing and developing these entities going forward.

This marks a new era for AdvanceQuip and its divisions, with their new Gore facility serving as the hub for AdvanceQuip, Gore Machine Hire, and Earthworm Attachments, reflecting the company's commitment to innovation and growth.

For Earthworm Attachments, this strategic move presents an opportunity to grow and enhance their capabilities. With other products being researched and added to the range, customers can expect more focus and commitment to living up to their mission of continuing to be the No. 1 Hydraulic Attachment Supplier in NZ.

For Gore Machine Hire, there has been a significant investment in their Machine Fleet, with a wider and more modern range of equipment than ever before. Along with their current Gore and Queenstown locations, they will also look to further grow their footprint in the Otago/Southland Region.

AdvanceQuip’s core values, dedication to quality, and industry expertise will remain unchanged, ensuring that both Earthworm Attachments and Gore Machine Hire continue to be reliable and trusted partners for the industry. 

The McLean Family, along with the wider AdvanceQuip Team, thanks its customers for their unwavering support over the past 19 years and look forward to continuing the valued relationships that have formed such an important part of their success story to date.
