Ultro Group’s beginnings were in Construction Contracting. The Founder, Matt Lynch, was first a tradesman and then a contractor employing teams of tradies. Matt’s early experience from the late ’90s was people in the construction game had a habit of letting each other down. This behaviour put people in the industry at risk, and Matt decided to set about changing that.
Matt launched Ultro Construction Services in 2011 with a promise to protect trade labour both physically and financially. Ultro Recruitment, as it is known today, provides around 400 people across the construction, civil, logistics, manufacturing and food processing industries. Matt’s passion for Ultro Recruitment was to ‘Find a Better Way’ to protect the workers.
As Ultro Recruitment grew, Matt followed in his father’s footprints into Plant & Equipment. Matt envisioned ‘a better way’ in this market to find strong brands with uncompromising, competitive performance and reliability and offer a much better return on investment equation for the equipment owner.
2018 saw Ultro Plant & Equipment secure the SANY Excavator range for Victoria, followed by the POWERPLUS equipment range for Australia in 2020. In keeping with what Ultro Recruitment has done for tradespeople, Matt and his team’s promise at Ultro Plant & Equipment is to ‘keep you going.’ The most crucial need for a business using our equipment, whether it is a big Civil Contractor or an owner-operator, is that they have a Plant & Equipment partner who can and will keep them going to do what they have to do.
