Harvestco Australia was formed by three timber industry experts in late 2006 with a successful tender securing the first harvesting and haulage services with the Forest Corporation of South Australia (Forestry SA) in Mount Gambier. The company commenced operations in January 2007 with four full-time employees, a harvester and a forwarder under a 5 year, 150,000 GMTPA (gross million metric tons per annum) contract with Forestry SA.
Over the past 13 years Harvestco has grown to a group of ten companies supplying eight separate landowners with harvest, haulage, site preparation, roading, and fire- fighting services. Today Harvestco has almost 100 employees, 60 machines, and 13 trucks servicing Mount Gambier (SA) Adelaide (SA), South-Western Victoria, Gippsland (Vic) Northern New South Wales, and South-Eastern Queensland.
Harvestco has the largest fleet of mechanised cut-to-length harvesting machines in Australia, as well as haulage vehicles and equipment, and various other plant and equipment. Harvesting operations are currently in excess of 1.5 GMTPA with a “Blue Chip” client base including Government, industrial, and timber investment management organisations.
