Carl Packer


Carl Packer is the founder and owner of Liberty Contractors. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience with over 40 years in contracting.

Carl’s  introduction to contracting began when he started working for the well respected Taunton Asphalts in Whanganui. He worked with them for 18 years on a variety of projects such as driveways, carparks, tennis courts (for both schools and private homes), site works and landscaping. During this time he became an expert machinery operator and gained a wide knowledge of levels, surfaces and materials. The last 10 years of Carl’s tiem with Taunton Asphalts was as foreman until the business ceased operating.

Carl then entered into contracting in partnership with his wife Rowie and has been operating ever since. In 1999 they relocated to Pukekohe and in recent years Carl formed the Liberty Group.

More recently Carl has responded to a growing demand for horse arena work, a great fit for the business and real passion for a man with extensive experience and a lifetime working with horses.
