Looking back - Lachie Griffen's pix

After spending his world war two years driving tanks, he came back to New Zealand and started a transport with some others.

Lachie developed a transport company that would be quite pioneering in many of its approaches, as it faced the difficulties of servicing the needs of a rural community in hilly, difficult terrain.

During this time he became known for his lead in pioneering the Cyclone stock crate, in conjunction with Cyclone Industries. A convertible two-deck sheep and one-deck cattle crate with pipe frame and cyclone netting.

Here are some of the photos of his time driving with Blatchford’s prior to staring his company, and more on Lachie can be seen here.
