We are Craig and Maureen Blackie we have been married for 25 years and we have three children/young adults, Sarge who also greets the customers has been our beloved dog for 10 years, we were born and breed in Dunedin and have lived there our whole lives. Craig is a keen rugby & family man, when it was time to hang up his boots he put his time and effort into coaching school boy rugby and prem colts at Kaikorai, he was also club captain until life just got to busy. Craig can be found most weekends on the side lines of a rugby match, football game or at the hockey turf depends on which child he is supporting that week. When Craig is not at a sports field he is in his garage, he has always had an interest in machines and loves to potter around fixing this and that, now he can do it all day every day. Life is good.
Prior to owning Blueskin Mowers and Chainsaws, We have been self employed for the past fourteen years and prior to that Craig was the operations/fleet manager at a local waste company, Maureen has a background in office administration.
Around 2014 we started looking for a new challenge and pursued a few different options for a new business. In Decemebr 2015 we spotted Blueskin Mowers and Chainsaws for sale and we jumped at the oportunity, "contra to popular belief Accountants and Bankers do work over Christmas" and thus we took over Blueskin Mowers and Chainsaws in February 2016.
