Ross Moore (Rosco), Reefton born and bred, started his working life as a builder and a miner. In 1995, after gaining experience and qualifications as an underground and opencast coal miner, he began trading on his own account as Rosco Contractors, offering his services to the mining, civil and building construction industries on the West Coast and Canterbury.
By 2002 with 10 people employed and a couple of million dollar earthwork jobs completed the company was incorporated.
Since then Rosco Contractors has grown steadily to where it is today, with over 100 people employed and with annual sales of $30 Million. Rosco is the sole director and shareholder of the company. The company reflects its owners hands-on, can-do style and with the involvement of a younger generation of Moores it is a firmly West Coast based family business.
