About the Polished Concrete Company
A Brief History
When Rodney Stirling started his carpet and vinyl flooring business in 1995 he was confronted with many substandard concrete floors that required a lot of preparation to get them ready for resurfacing. He needed a workhorse that could do the job right and made the investment in a powerful and efficient, three phase, four head, diamond blade grinder; the Holar HTC 650 HDX concrete grinding system from Sweden.
Later when Peter Mugridge joined the team from Auckland, he advised Rodney on the applications that the HDX was capable of. Concrete floor polishing was the way forward; in style, elegance, price point and versatility. The Polished Concrete Company was established in 1996.
The team has received training from Holer Nelson, the HTC distributors in New Zealand and are all trained in the professional Superfloor™ HTC Method. We are also trained in the Husquavarna Hiper Floor System and we have undergone specialist Terrazzo training.
The Polished Concrete Team
Rodney’s team is very important to him. He is passionate about creating a fair and safe environment for his workers while also ensuring that his tradesmen working on your project are consistent, reliable, professional, considerate and know how to polish concrete.
All of his tradesmen are employees, with sick pay, holiday and bereavement leave and PAYE taken care of. Rodney feels that this is the only way to work in a positive, healthy and caring environment, and how he can support his community and keep it local.
Rodney prides himself and his team on doing the best job possible, on time, every time and believes price is a factor but can never be the driving force.

Excellent thank you Rodney, much appreciated! And we really appreciated the additional input and work from Daz, he was amazing and provided an excellent service. Thanks again
Rodney and the team did the concrete floors for my new retail shop in Cambridge. We are absolutely thrilled with the end result of the floors, they have come up beautifully, it looks amazing and we get so many compliments regarding the new concrete finish. Rodney's team went over and above to work over the weekend and late into the night to complete the floors, so that building could start on Monday. The team was very professional to deal with and helpful in all aspects of the job. I would thoroughly recommend The Polished Concrete Company and you are welcome to check out our new concrete floors at our shop in Cambridge.
The Polished Concrete Company did a great job on our new concrete floor - we had black concrete laid and wanted it polished to look like an iron sand beach - the boys worked hard and long hours to complete the project - we where happy with the result and get many positive comments from visitors.
I just want to thank you and your guys for a sensational job, the 1st coat has gone down on the floor and it looks fantastic. I want to congratulate you on your professionalism and that of your guys. Pete and the young guy worked their butts off turning a substandard floor into something my wife is exceptionally happy with. Polite and friendly, easy to talk too, unlike a lot of young fellas today. The way the house was left each night was awesome, bugger all dust, path and deck washed down, furniture put back inside, blew me away. Rodney you have a business and team to be proud of... Great Job... Should you ever want me to sing your praises I'm only to happy to talk to any of your future clients.
