Our editor spoke with one of Fulton Hogan’s Managers, who heads up the proposed Roydon Quarry project.
Tell us about Fulton Hogan and where the company sits in New Zealand’s quarrying industry.
The impression from staff is that we are a family-orientated company—our staff are shareholders, and members of our founding families still work throughout the business. Our family values, behaviours and appropriate community engagement methods are emphasised to new staff early on with a two-and-a-half day induction. Safety is of utmost importance to us as a construction firm, so our induction includes briefings on how to be safe, proper procedures and our company expectations.
Part of Fulton Hogan Values:
Fulton Hogan is currently acting as a leader in the local aggregate industry, seeking to lift performance across this sector with the inclusion of an industry-wide code of practice. We are also looking at ways to improve our technology and make our quarry information more transparent. This could include live feeds, making monitoring data available to the public, or dashboard concepts such as those used by the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI).
