Our History


Lindsay Wood the founder of Riequip, started training as a small engine mechanic and after completing his apprenticeship he moved into sales roles and gathered a vast knowledge of the construction and industrial power equipment industry throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s.


Lindsay brought a small business named Rural Supplies, selling industrial power equipment and engineering supplies. The business rapidly expanded to include Honda generators and pumps, and other respected brands of power equipment.


The requirement for larger premises was met with a move to a new building at 29 King Edward St, Motueka. The range continued to expand with the addition of diesel generators. With the move came a name change to Rural & Industrial Equipment.


The range continued to grow with the addition of Titan power equipment and Alto plate compactors and concrete equipment, the business name was also shortened to Riequip.


Altrad Belle joined the growing ranks of world renown brands sold by Riequip. Altrad Belle products are used widely in the UK by hire companies and are well known for their simple design, reliability, and ease of use with industry leading low vibration features for long, safe use times.
