November 2012 saw an exciting time for Progressive when we acquired from Waikato Milking Systems the installation and servicing arm of Rotary Platforms NZ. Now under Progressives control, this means that we can even further control another vital step in the dairy shed build - the supply and installation of the Rotary Platform.

With the rotary platform performing a critical part in the milking process it is imperative that it keeps going round so as well as installing new platforms, repairs and upgrades to existing platforms are also a major part of our offering. Talk to us today about how you can get more life out of your kit and how to protect one of the most expensive pieces of machinery in the milking shed. We have 6 trained staff available ready to go to work for you.

what people say about progresive engineering?

"I engaged Progressive Engineering to design and implement the effluent system for our new conversion at Feldwick.
During the course of the project we had poor weather which caused delays. Progressive helped us through so we were able to milk our cows on time.
The design and build phase went very well and the system we signed up for versus what was delivered is exactly as we had hoped. The Mono pump and cobra rain gun are great products and function every bit as well as we had hoped.
The staff that worked on the job from the design and quote stage through to the team that fitted the system were most helpful and did an excellent job.
I would thoroughly recommend Progressive Engineering to install your effluent system, you will not be disappointed."

"Janene and I made the decision to use Progressive Engineering to build our new shed at Otautau. This was to be our 4th Waikato shed and it seemed the logical decision to engage Progressive to build the new shed also.
We are happy with the finished result. The shed is finished to a high standard. The team that worked on the shed from the builder through to the milking machine team and the electricians were great. The shed was completed and commissioned on time and it now functions very well and is great to work in.
I have no hesitation in recommending the team at Progressive Engineering to anyone looking to build a new shed or upgrade an existing shed. The level of professionalism and quality of their work enabled the project to be completed on time. "

After installing a set of Waikato Milking systems Ultimate ECR's c/w Swingarms and a wet - it QD0 automatic walk over teat spray system in my 36 bail herringbone shed during the winter period; i have found that these components have helped remove the intensity of the daily routine of milking the cows as well as creating a more relaxed milking environment.
I have also experienced a reduction in Somatic Cell Count Averages - down from 90 - 110,000 last year to 60 - 70,000 so far this year.
"I knew i was getting a good product from the guys at Progressive Engineering Southland but the whole package has exceeded my expectations"
