Our History

Donnelley Civil, originally named N.S. Donnelley, was started by Tony Donnelley in 1958.

A family business based in Wollongong, N.S Donnelley hired air compressors and industrial equipment to the construction, demolition and civil engineering industries. When equipment wasn’t hired out, Tony and his team would undertake their own demolition and civil projects.

The business grew with the Illawarra, playing a role in the region’s development. By 1992, Donnelley Civil had developed into two areas of operation; Plant and Operator Hire and Civil Contracting.

Today, Donnelley Civil employs over 50 full time staff. It remains a family owned and operated company.

Our strong customer service and safety focused culture is underpinned by an enduring work ethic, instilled by Tony in the company’s formative years. This is seen at every level of the business today.
