Founded in Melbourne in 1918 by Otto Yuncken and Lauritz Hansen, Hansen Yuncken has grown steadily in stature as a respected builder of major construction projects.
The company has retained the tradition of quality and business integrity established by the founding partners, although the faces and methods have changed over the years.
The partnership between Otto Yuncken and Lauritz Hansen proved a durable one and Hansen Yuncken quickly became known for its innovative solutions to difficult problems - a reputation that continues to the present.
In 1925, the company opened a regional branch in Shepparton, Victoria. In 2006 it was decided to expand this regional coverage by opening an office in Albury/Wodonga to service both regional Victoria and Southern New South Wales.
In 1937, Hansen Yuncken expanded its operations into Hobart, Tasmania followed shortly after in 1939 with an office in Adelaide, South Australia.
The late 60’s saw the opening of its Northern Territory office. A permanent presence was maintained until 2000, at which time it was decided to target only the larger projects in the region.
The company also operated an office in Queensland during the early 80's and in 2007 commenced an operation in Cairns, and in 2009 opened an office in Townsville. In 2010 an office in Brisbane was established.
In 1989, the company commenced operations in New South Wales, initially in joint venture, but now operating in its own right. In 2006 a decision was also made to open an office in Newcastle to better service our clients in this area and the Hunter Valley region.
