Murray Marsh

Murray was born and raised on a sheep farm, in South Taranaki so he knows the meaning of hard work.
He started his apprenticeship in brick and blocklaying in New Plymouth when he was 17 years old where his employer had a contact with Housing New Zealand so was involved in bricklaying for state housing. They also worked with individual builders on residential properties and did a lot of commercial block work.
Murray is married to Denyse and they live on a lifestyle block just out of Hamilton. Between them they have seven children, the youngest two still attending school in Hamilton. Denyse helps Murray in the administration side of the business and has a background working in law offices.
Murray and Denyse bought the concrete pumping business seven years ago consisting of two concrete pumping trucks, and it has steadily grown to where it is today, with a fleet of 4 trucks and two full-time pump operators and two part-time pump operators. The concrete pumps complement the brick and blocklaying side of the business really well.

Murray has built a solid reputation in the Waikato with the bricklaying business, and having served a few years as President of The Brick and Blocklayers Federation, is well known and respected among the other Waikato Bricklayers. Murray loves to work closely with clients to achieve the effect that they want, and is quite happy to try different finishes to suit an individual’s desired look. He also has a good rapport with builders and enjoys the more technical aspects of bricklaying.

For recreation Murray enjoys all water sports, particularly water skiing and the family are members of a club at Lake Karapiro. Murray learned to water ski when he was 7 years old and is now a lifetime member of the barefoot skiing club, having gained his barefoot badge in 1977. Murray used to compete in National barefoot waterskiing competitions, often coming first in his category.
