Our Story

We are a hard-working family-owned company based right here in Hamilton, New Zealand…

Being in a large fast-growing city like Hamilton allows us to work on large commercial projects, new builds, renovations as well as a wide range of every-day plumbing & gasfitting jobs and maintenance work.

Alba was started in 2014 by Graeme Clark, after having worked in various areas of the local plumbing industry in Hamilton for 5 years. Graeme hails from Scotland, hence the name Alba which means ‘Scotland’ in Gaelic. In 2009 he was dragged to New Zealand by his Kiwi wife, Sally, and brought with him over 35 years experienced gained in the UK.

Graeme loves the more relaxed lifestyle in Hamilton compared to the UK. On weekends he enjoys (attempting!) to lower his golf handicap.
