When Bob and Marlene Taylor sold their Upper Moutere hop farm lease, she said, "Good, now we can buy a house." He said, "No, we can buy a bulldozer." The Taylors and their three sons went on to turn a one-man forestry roading operation into one of the best-known contracting compa...nies in the Nelson Marlborough region. Bob developed his skills and his reputation as he moved from bulldozers to exca- vators, doing farm drainage work, laying pipes and building dams. He was alwaysan innovator, the first to take excavators into the forest and the first to modify and fabricate the buckets and attachments needed for the job. He built a skilled and loyal team around him and supported others in the industry. When he died suddenly at the age of 56 his sons Charlie and Matt stepped up and took over, and with Marlene's guiding hand and their brother Arthur's support they built the company to what it is today.
