Nelson Forests Ltd is a New Zealand based forestry company that’s been managed by Global Forest Partners, one of the world’s oldest and largest forestry investment managers and advisors.
Nelson Forests currently own 78,000 hectares of high quality radiata pine plantations in the Nelson and Marlborough regions of New Zealand which also includes the Kaituna Sawmill near Blenheim.
MEX is used at the Kaituna Sawmill to manage the maintenance activities on site. We use the Asset Register to organise our assets based on functionality. Our Assets are first categorised into 9 processing levels, then further sub categorised into 5 levels of equipment needed to maintain operations.
We have been using MEX for 9 and-a-half years and we are extremely satisfied with the benefits that have eventuated since its implementation. It is easy to use and our meticulously structured Asset Register allows us to intently monitor our machinery and assets at each processing level ensuring that we have maximised work flow, reduced breakdowns, significantly improved uptime and met compliance conditions.
“MEX has greatly improved our plant uptime, and increased efficiency in tracking the maintenance of our assets.”
