The Tasmanian Forestry Contractors Association's executive director, Ferdie Kroon, said the contractor involved recently had been through "absolute hell" personally.

"It's just boiled over in absolute frustration," Mr Kroon said.

Forest Contractors welcome Government's Review Announcement

"TFCA has been arguing for some time that the mix of contract conditions as well as the Global Financial Crisis and the changing forest resource have all contributed to a destabilised forest contracting sector", said Mr Ferdie Kroon, TFCA's CEO.

"The State Government has not only heard our calls, but it has readily responded to the submissions from individual contractors and even finance representatives", said Mr Kroon.
The bi-partisan support for these reviews is also encouraging and this clearly demonstrates the continuing importance of the forest industry to the Tasmanian economy.
"The declining equity status and credit issues coupled to the ever present requirement for structural adjustment are all matters which could be potentially addressed by the outcomes of these review processes", said Mr Kroon.
Contractors, their communities and the businesses that rely on them, also hope that the outcomes of these reviews will go a long way towards creating a better investment environment for contractors and a stronger sector for the industry to rely on.
"Such an environment may also lead to new and exciting employment opportunities for many young Tasmanians, which in turn starts to address the sector's ageing workforce problem and encourages more Tasmanians to remain and work in this State", said Mr Kroon.

ForestWorks Learning & Skills Development: News: Fire suppression and protection of forests in Tasmania given boost

"Not only has the industry ended up with excellent and modern training tools but every participant in the program ends up with national recognition for their training efforts, this is critical because employees often move between employers and even States and thus national recognition will make this easier," said Ferdie Kroon, TFCAs Chief Executive Officer.

The Project Team's focus on industry's needs was also welcomed by the TFCA because the end result is a series of competencies that aligns well with previous training requirements.
"The allowance for recognition of prior learning will ensure that previously earned skills will not only be quickly recognised but is now linked to the national framework. Let us not lose sight of the fact the forestry contractors and their employees are engaging in a training process that will result in direct community benefits during the ever critical bush fire season," said Mr Kroon.

TFCA's CEO Mr Ferdie Kroon said today.

"We urge the ACCC to be thorough in their evaluation of the issue, as any major change in the industry must be in the best interest, and to the benefit of the entire supply chain and the communities that depend on the industry for their livelihoods," Mr Kroon said.
"These are questions coming from the little guys who plainly fear a monopoly being created in their industry," said Mr Kroon.
" We need to understand fully how the proposed Gunns acquisition might impact the entire supply chain including contractors, private growers, farm foresters sawmillers, fibre exporters, and also other forestry companies who currently provide some healthy competitive tension," said Mr Kroon.
"The ACCC is currently investigating the possibility of the Gunns acquisition as imposing decreased competition in the Tasmanian forestry industry, and it is expected to release their findings some time soon."
"It's vital that all questions are now raised so as to bring to light any areas of concerns before it is too late," said Mr Kroon.
