OPERATOR PROFILE

P

eta had a successful career as a carpenter

before deciding to become a contractor just

over 20 years ago.

“After one of the recessions I decided to get

out of carpentry and a friend told me about these

lawn contracting businesses and franchises. I just

purchased my own business from a sole trader like

me,” she said.

Peta had the business for six months before

meeting Kerry. Kerry had been a stay-at-home

mum for many years, after which she started

helping her brother with his Jim’s franchise.

Peta and Kerry Haywood have operated Poynton Maintenance

Services as equal business partners for a number of years,

contracting their services to maintain commercial and domestic

properties. Peta and Kerry recently spoke with Power Equipment

Australasia about how they got into the contracting business, the

impressive fleet of equipment they have compiled, and what it is

like to be women in a male dominated industry.
