Three generations of Bowers have served the Waikato and Bay of Plenty rural and building sectors for more than 70 years.  Currently run by directors Jeff and Robyn Bowers, their nephew Scott Hill and his wife Rebecca (having taken over from Scott’s parents Glenice and John Hill), and Jeff and Robyn’s son Lachlan Bowers, the business was started after World War II by Jeff’s grandfather Howard Bowers and father Raymond Bowers.
