Concrete In Australia : December 2013
Concrete in Australia Vol 39 No 4 25 seen in every road and rail construction project around Australia. Managing director Gary Power, who has been with Reinforced Earth since 1982, has seen the total market for mechanically stabilised earth walls with precast concrete facings for road and rail infrastructure grow to over 100,000m2 annually. Reid retired from AHR in 1985 and from Reinforced Earth in 1987, but continued as chairman for some years. AHR was split into separate mining and construction businesses and sold in 1997. CCL and Ancon merged to form Ancon CCL, now Ancon Building Products. ITW (Illinois Tool Works) bought the business of Reid Construction Systems in 2003, and Reinforced Earth is a division of Freyssinet Group. All are market leaders. Recalling his time in business, Reid said: “More than anything else it is the efficiency of an organisation that determines its future and this is affected by the motivation of its people. Even motivated people can go astray if there is a lack of firm and clear-sighted management, policy and organisation. It is the people that count. So Reid’s legacy lives on: a concrete man of business, innovative, bravery and determination, always on the lookout for something new. An inspiration to us all.
