When Gerard unexpectedly passed away their nephew Peter Corcoran stepped in to take over a manager role to help out. In 2001 Peter bought the company and renamed it Peter Corcoran Contracting Limited.Peter also runs a 140ha sheep farm at Waikaka with 2100 stock units giving him a good understanding of customers' needs. The business has had steady growth, doubling in size during 2007-2012 fuelled by a mix of acquisitions and the boom of the dairy industry, which has driven need for supplementary feed.
