Shane and Dean Goodlad started work on a local farm at the age of 13 and 14 years old. During this time, they purchased their first tractor in 2008 and started to offer their contracting services to local farms. Soon after leaving school, Shane became self-employed and set up S & D Goodlad.
Knowing that farming and contracting their services was a passion both brothers shared, they began to steadily expand S & D Goodlad by buying machinery to improve their services. Since 2008, the company has continued to expand further throughout agriculture and developed new services in a wide range of industries. Most recently, working with the highways and utility sectors where they specialise and tailor their services to meet the needs of their clients.
