A Kiwi Original | Christchurch Infrastructure | Episode 5
As New Zealand grows, so too must its infrastructure. In this episode, we look at how Fulton Hogan is looking to grow the numbers of people getting into the industry, and how Spunlite Poles are using innovative manufacturing processes and fantastic Kiwi support to stay competitive with overseas imports.
One of the biggest challenges that New Zealand faces is getting enough people into the infrastructure sector to keep up with our growing country. Fulton Hogan and its partners have decided to tackle this hurdle head-on. They've taken Kiwis that are looking for jobs and put them into the newly established Infrastructure Skills Centre. Employed from day 1, these recruits are taught a wide range of infrastructure skills, from drain laying to road building, with a guaranteed job at the end of it. This fantastic programme is doing good for all New Zealanders and we can't wait to see it grow.
Spunlite Poles don't just make poles, they make solutions. When someone needs a streetlight or a 100+ meter radio mast, Spunlite are the guys you should call. With imports coming into the market, Spunlite has looked to innovation and great service to stay competitive, because there are not many companies that still support products they made 40 years ago.
