Posted July 14, 2018 06:09:18A retired BDO loggers’ company is closing down after it failed to attract enough timber to cover its budget and has already lost its owners.
Giant Logging Timber (GLT), a subsidiary of the BDO Logging and Timber Processing Company, has laid off 200 workers at its main plant in the north-west of NSW.GLT was formed in 1993, according to a company website.
The closure follows a string of bad news for the company, including a string at the plant in January 2017, which resulted in a $1 million payment to BDO, which the company claimed was due to a breach of employment terms.
In October 2017, BDO settled a $10 million lawsuit with the Logging Industry Federation for breach of contract and a $5 million settlement with the NSW Labor Party.BDO Logger’s statement of claim against BDO and BDO’s managing director, Michael Smith, for breach the Employment Act in November 2018 said the company was “currently in the process of closing its current and former Logging Processing Facilities in the North-West”.
“Giant will be exiting its operations in the Northern Territory, Queensland and Victoria,” the statement read.
“Giant is the only remaining BDO Timber Processing Facility in the NT.”GTT will remain in full operation in the NSW and ACT for the foreseeable future.
“Giant was founded in the 1950s by former loggers and contractors who used to work in the forestry industry.
Bdo Logging was formed after logging and processing companies merged in 1999.
The NT’s Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has confirmed it has received a request from the NT Forestry Department to investigate the closure.”
