Hamish Lamb began his first business in 1992. Along with three others, he was a founder of Matangi Landscape Supplies which initially provided a service, to local 'DIY-ers' and then later to the National Fieldays, supplying all manner of landscaping supplies and services to exhibitors.
Following the buyout of his partners, he changed the name to Landscape Factory and was still working predominantly at the Fieldays with exhibitors. It was then that Hamish's first corporate client asked him to look after his marquee, catering, and signage as he’d “had enough of that foggy creek”!
As a result, in August 2000, X-Site Management was born. Straightaway, the landscaping took a bit of a back seat, and Hamish focused on managing exhibitors' sites and events throughout NZ.
In 2010, Hamish had his first foray into marquee and infrastructure, purchasing 'Cairnwood Hire' from the Cottle family in Auckland. This included the country's very first two-story marquee. From there, the business went from strength to strength. Hamish purchased 'Ridgway Linen' and 'Hamilton Party Hire' in 2015, then 'Auckland marquee Hire' and 'Blakes Hire' in 2016. The rest as they say is history.
X-Site is now one of (if not) the largest privately owned marquee and infrastructure hire company in New Zealand, supplying equipment from Kaitaia to Bluff and one of the few in the industry that travels the country for their clients.
