Sooty has had a passion for trucks his whole life. Starting at the age of five riding in D series Fords and Dodges with the NZ Forest Services Hawkes Bay Metal Fleet. Schooling ended in New Plymouth where he completed a Mechanical Apprenticeship before joining AR West Logging as a fleet Mechanic Driver. A full-time driving opportunity came from McCarthys which he jumped at. A move to JD Hickmans provided General Freight experience before gaining his first Owner Driver contract with Owens Tankers’ Challenge Fuel contract, progressing on to Caltex, Hot Bitumen, LPG, and General Freight at Hooker Pacific. Fast forward 14 years from Fulltime Offshore in Maintenance and Crane driving, a return to the Transport Industry came with the purchase of Clive Taylor Ltd in 2021.

Andy has squeezed in a wealth of experiences immersed in Trucking in the Horowhenua. Gisborne born ’n’ bred, he quickly found his feet in Levin and the love for the Transport industry was apparent. Gathering knowledge and skills from JB’s worked him up to a Class 5 role quickly, operating all of the top gear in their fleet. A move to Clive Taylor Ltd had him grounded in not only Tipper work but also Flat deck specialised cartage as well as transporting and civil contracts. Hotmix and bulk cartage on M2PP was where it all started. Andy worked his way into a new Hardox unit, ROCKDOG, where the hunger for Boulder Cartage began. The company now has 7 dedicated Rock units operating today. Andy dispatches CTH workloads through The MyTrucking Program to not only our own operators but also our Subbies and Clients for transparency.
