Spanning generations

The Goldsmith family purchased their first pieces of plant in 1954 – a Caterpillar D4 bulldozer and a new Shearer majestic stump jump disc plough. Matt, Harold and Geoffrey, the Goldsmith sons, started clearing bushland and sinking dams throughout the South Gippsland district, to meet the demand for extra farmland at the end of WW2.

In the late 1960’s, a long association with Allis Chalmers began when the brothers began purchasing larger pieces of equipment at an increasing rate. This allowed them to take on bigger contracts and expand their footprint.

By 1981, the company was taken over by Geoff and was known as G Goldsmith Constructions. Over the 1980’s period, the company carried out civil projects and gained experience in civil construction and road works, as well as maintaining a presence in bulk earthworks.

In 1989 Geoff’s nephew Stuart Curtis joined him as an operator and has become integral to the company, where he oversees operational plant activity. Geoff’s son Cameron joined the business in 1993, becoming the driving force in expanding and developing all aspects of the business into what it is today.

We're passionate about plant and equipment - it's in our DNA- Cameron Goldsmith, Managing Director.
