Looking back: the President's award

Evergreen is built on a will to win. We have the awards to prove it.

Martin Flavell established Martin Flavell & Associates on a culture of uncompromising commitment to excellence. To work for the company, you had to rise to his exacting standards and deliver exceptionally, no matter what your station in the enterprise. This culture remains in the organisation to this day.

Recognition through the years

In 1987, Martin was recognised for his achievements in the timber trade with the President’s Award for Export Achievement, a prestigious accolade signed by His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh. Rarely conferred on companies of the size of Martin Flavell & Associates at the time, it underscored the spirit of pioneering that has always been at the heart of what we do.

Our goal: keep winning

Evergreen Holdings is well-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities that lay ahead. At the heart of our company is a determination and a will to rise above that has always driven success. Timber exports remain a core business, with record volumes recorded year on year since 2018. Structuring our service offering to meet the needs of a growing global client base means we expect our export records to continue to fall in the years to come.
