Otter Fencing recently welcomed a visit from Fred Reid, who is now 90 years of age.

Fred worked as a Workshop Manager with Otter Fencing in the very early years of the business for 10 years and left Otter Fencing in 1971 when Otter Fencing was located in Fulton St. Huntingdale. Fred was a highly valued team member in the early days of the business who helped Otter Fencing gain a strong foundation.

Our current Workshop Manager Stewart Waldron began working with Otter Fencing as a Welder and later progressing to Leading Hand around the same time as Fred left the business in 1971. Stewart still works with Otter Fencing as a dedicated and tireless Workshop Manager.

Ray Otter has been working with Otter Fencing since 1963 and is well known and respected throughout the fencing industry with an extensive knowledge of all things to do with Fencing and Gates. Ray was the Chairman of the Australian Standards committee and was key to the development of the initial Australian Standards for Chain-link Fabric Fencing in 1975 and also the subsequent upgrades in 2003 & 2010.

Combined, these three very loyal and dedicated individuals have provided 100 years of valued service to Otter Fencing, which is an achievement to be acknowledged and applauded.
