South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Pu­taruru Qu­bik TMC re­ceived the award for Best Small Agribusi­ness Out­door Site at Fiel­d­ays re­cently.

Qu­bik TMC Pu­taruru Branch Man­ager Mark Craig was flat­tered by the award.

‘‘We were fo­cused on en­sur­ing our site was best de­sign to suit our clients’ needs,’’ Mr Craig said.

‘‘ Re­ceiv­ing the award was a great way to end a busy and suc­cess­ful week at the Fiel­d­ays’’.

It was the first time the lo­cal busi­ness had their own site at the national farm­ing event.

‘‘Hav­ing our own site at the Fiel­d­ays has been some­thing that the com­pany has been talk­ing about and work­ing to­wards for a num­ber of years, and this year the tim­ing was right,’’ Mr Craig said.

Late last year Qu­bik be­came one of only 12 ef­flu­ent ac­cred­ited or­gan­i­sa­tions in New Zealand and Mr Craig said this played its part en­sur­ing the com­pany had its own pres­ence at the Fiel­d­ays.

‘‘Ef­flu­ent is a very pop­u­lar topic within the farm­ing in­dus­try at the mo­ment, and it is im­por­tant that our ex­per­tise in the in­dus­try was known, so this be­came the fo­cus be­hind our site.’’

The plan­ning and or­gan­i­sa­tion for the day went rel­a­tively smoothly.

‘‘We knew early on the de­sign and lay­out for our site, and also what equip­ment we wanted to dis­play.

‘‘It was im­por­tant for us to have an op­er­at­ing site, to clearly demon­strate how the equip­ment worked and what ben­e­fits it had to the farmer.’’ Mr Craig said.
