OneFortyOne (OFO) was formed in 2012 following the acquisition of forestry plantation assets from the South Australian State Government. In 2018, they acquired the Jubilee Sawmill along with various New Zealand assets, including forestry plantation and sawmill assets in the Nelson / Marlborough region.
In 2022, OFO appointed a Director of Health & Safety with a remit to improve how the organisation manages health and safety. These improvements will inform the strategic Health and Safety Roadmap, which aims to transform the organisation from a group of separate operational units into a unified, collaborative organisation that manages health and safety consistently and responsibly, and cares for its people and the communities it operates in. Verus was brought in to assist.
