PF Olsen plays part in the Inaugural Top of the South Forestry Awards

Crew of the Year - Reed Contracting

This was the first time that the entire local industry had got together in one place, so that alone was something special about the event. Hosted by the hilarious Paul Ego, and with the Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese making a speech, it set the tone well.

There were over 80 nominations for the 15 different award categories. For those that haven’t been involved in these events before, the nomination process is not as simple as a phone call or email to recommend someone.  You have to write a minimum word count of 600 words, provide evidence, an independent testimonial, and photos. This shows how much effort everyone put in to make the event what it was.

PF Olsen was very proud to have been a Bronze sponsor for the event, and we were even more proud of our medal haul. Most significantly , our harvesting crew of 10 years, Reed Contracting, were given the crew of the year award. A huge recognition amongst the other 50 -odd other crews operating in the region.

Summary of  PF Olsen workforce recognised:


A great night for the PF Olsen staff and partners to enjoy, and a fantastic award haul. A real testament to the hard work of the PF Olsen staff and contractor workforce.
