Simon Marr Managing Director“Cranes are in my blood. Ever since I was a kid, all I wanted to do was work in the family business. I started as a yard boy and, after completing a business course, worked my way up the ranks. I love challenges and refuse to be told something can’t be done.”
Gordon 'Boof' Marr Technical Director“Like Simon, I followed in Dad’s footsteps to join the family business. What I enjoy most about what we do is working closely together to find solutions to the major challenges our clients come to us with. We’re straight up, honest and tell it how it is.”

Craig Goltz Operations Director"Engaged in the construction industry for almost 40 years, I’ve worked across Australia and the world in senior management roles spanning the oil, gas and chemicals, mining and minerals, power, infrastructure and nuclear sectors.

Steve Ryder General Manager"After more than 30 years’ working on large-scale construction projects across the UK’s petrochemical and thermal sectors, I’m still enthused by the heavy lifting aspects of a project. I’m excited about furthering Marr’s innovative approach to heavy lifting into the local construction culture – and challenging the industry mindset to think differently about how the optimum crane solution can add real value to the project delivery.”
John Young Construction Manager“Tower cranes have always been my passion. I’ve been erecting and operating heavy lift cranes for over 15 years and I’m proud to wear the Marr’s badge because I know we are the best in the business.”

It’s great to be part of such a hard-working, innovative team."

He always told me that there was no better place to work than with The Men From Marr’s. I joined Marr’s team 10 years ago as a rigger, eager to learn and follow in my father’s footsteps. Since then, I’ve moved up the ranks – constantly learning along the way, because every day brings a new challenge."
