Our Story

MA Skinner Contracting Pty Ltd is an earthmoving company and supplier of sands and metals, located in Wallaroo on the Yorke Peninsula.

Not only does the company supply the sand and metals products and machines to assist you with your earthmoving projects, they can also supply you with the site necessities to make your jobs easier: Portable toilets and showers, and temporary fencing panels – all available to be delivered to your job sites, covering all of Yorke Peninsula, east to Port Wakefield and Balaklava, and north all the way through to Port Augusta and Whayalla.

Mark started off in the earthmoving industry over 30 years ago with one piece of machinery – a backhoe, and himself as the sole operator.

Over the years, the company has become a key player in the earthmoving industry, completing contracts involving subdivision preparations, trenching, and roadworks, as well as supplying high quality products for other operators in the industry.

The business has expanded in the 30 years since Mark started, moving to bigger premises on the Moonta Road, and acquiring more plant and machinery to be able to get the projects completed, making it one of the more progressive and recognisable companies in the area.

Our focus is not only on completing the jobs and supplying high quality products, but one of building the long term relationships with our clients, contractors and suppliers.

Our Quality Management System has been certified by TQCS as meeting the requirements of AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015.

The system is an integral part of our business process from the initial consultation through to project completion.
