2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book about where your daily bread comes from. The New Zealand flour milling industry has an extraordinary tumultuous history...with flourmilers struggling with insufficient quality in the wheat crop, and growers vigorously asserting their right to what they argued was a fair price their wheat. This anecdotal account ... reviews the twists and turns of developments in the industry from their beginnings in the late nineteenth century. It continues throught he extraordinary 50-year period in the mid-twentieth century when governments wrested control to ensure Kiwi's bread remained affordable, in the process creating a bureaucratic monster. Interwoven is the parallel attempt by the academic and state research sectors to improve the quality of wheatgrowers' product..."--Back cover

Doing it right : Fulton Hogan's first 75 years by Dave McKinnon( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Little would two Dunedin men have known, as they grittily tackled the odd contracting job to get them through the Depression years, where their efforts would lead. In 75 years Fulton Hogan has prospered and grown to join the ranks of new Zaland's 20 largest companies. If Fulton Hogan is known for anything, it is for its propensity to work away from the spotlight. New Zealanders, so accustomed to the sight of Fulton Hogan people and their lagoon blue vehicles at work on the roads, can at last access the inside story of how this company came to be the highly accomplished infrastructure builder it is today."Doing it right" was primarily written for Fulton Hogan shareholders and staff, but everyone is invited to enjoy this candidly-told story. It tells of the determination of a small cohort of ordinary Kiwis to build a great business, and it offers all the elements of a great yarn: bold initiatives, costly mistakes, canny innovations and above all a willingness to pursue opportuniites wherever they arose -- all with a good lashing of humour stirred in." -- Back cover

The bushman & the builder : the first three decades of Arrow International by Dave McKinnon( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bushman and the Builder tells the story of how two young Dunedin construction men took a gamble. They quit their well-paid jobs with the country's largest building company and set up their own outfit with a radically different approach. They were men on a mission and this is the rollicking tale of what happened next. Arrow International would up-end the way projects were built in New Zealand. It would push a lot of noses out of joint. It would tackle jobs that no other company would - or could - touch. And it would save clients a lot of money in the process. This book shines a torch inside the company, relating how this came about, describing the obstacles the company encountered along the way, and accounts for both its successes and wrong turns. Into our companies roller-coaster ride is woven the story of its distinctive culture of outdoor adventuring and multi-sport participation. A widely-believed rumour held that to win a position in Arrow, applicants had to have competed in at least one Coast to Coast."--Publisher's description
