Who would deny JC Fletcher's dispassionate assessment of business reality? Most of New Zealand's great business icons of the twentieth century have withered, disappeared or been swallowed by other firms. But a century after James Fletcher began his work in Dunedin, in 1909, Fletcher Building continues to perform as one of New Zealand's largest and most trusted companies, with a significant international presence. This book tells the story of how Fletchers, in its many manifestations over the decades, has transformed New Zealand's built environment by constructing such renowned structures as the Auckland University Clock Tower and the Museum of New Zealand: Te Papa Tongarewa. Equally, the company has helped shaped the country's economic development by creating efficiencies of scale in construction and building materials, and by pioneering many new industries.
