Mark Hunua, Diesel Technician

For three decades, Mark has been across big gear and related industries since qualifying as an Automotive Engineering Heavy Equipment Diesel Mechanic, and has been with Progressive Field Services Ltd since early 2017. He particularly enjoys the varied nature of the job, performing marine work one day and forestry or mining the next. HIs strength is in diagnostics and he believes strongly in a methodical approach, supporting his work ethic of, 'do it once, do it right.'

When he's not head down in heavy machinery, Mark is a busy dad, along with his partner, keeping up with their three young children and their many sports activities. Somehow, he still finds time for a car restoration hobby and he's currently rebuilding a Mark 1 Escort as a racing car for a friend.
