About us


The Ian Harrington Group has a proud and rich history as a privately owned and operated Tasmanian company.

The initial founder of Roadways, Ian Harrington was a pioneer. A hard worker, an industry leader and visionary, he established his small business more than 50 years ago and with a commitment to quality and customer service and developed it into a statewide icon.

Today, the Ian Harrington Group stretches its network statewide with long standing members Roadways, Statewide Linemarking and more recently acquired businesses, Protector Rail and Rockit Asphalting.

With a workforce of more than 100 Tasmanians across our locations throughout greater Hobart and Burnie, we proudly remain Tasmanian owned and operated, and an intrinsic part of the Tasmanian community.
