The Thistle Story

We are super proud of our Scottish Heritage at Thistle… with many Scottish ties.

Simon has a passion for building. His very first project in Scotland was an old Scottish school built in 1894. The joy of bringing the old school back to life fuelled his love of building, and won him Scottish Building Apprentice of the Year in 1999.

Sophie’s love of business was inherited from her Scottish Grandfather, who gifted her a silver thistle pendant when she was a girl, which has become our much loved Thistle logo!

Returning to New Zealand with our two wee Scottish boys gave us the amazing opportunity to establish Thistle Building Company in 2007.

Today Thistle continues to grow from strength to strength, and is now recognised as one of the regions leading building companies.
