No Job Too Hard PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

No Job Too Hard free pdf No Job Too Hard begins with Fletcher Holdings playing a vital role in World War II and Jim Fletcher acting as Commissioner of Defence Construction. His controversial approach got results, and after the war he was pivotal in the creation of the Ministry of Works. During his father's absence, 28-year-old JC Fletcher grew Fletcher Holdings into New Zealand's largest conglomerate. Its construction business would face post-war shortages, restrictive building controls and the running down of state house construction. Jack recounts the company's early efforts to diversify by going offshore, and its ultimately successful entry into civil engineering. This is a story of war and peace, of success and failure, and how New Zealand's premier builder coped in the face of many challenges. No job was too hard, too arduous, or too daunting.
