    A Dunedin businessman has been fined 85 thousand dollars for misrepresenting concrete panels

    A Dunedin businessman has been fined 85 thousand dollars for misrepresenting concrete panels


    Cavan Forde last month pleaded guilty to three representative charges under the Fair Trading Act.

    The charges relate to his importation and supply of autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) - which is used as a non-structural exterior cladding for buildings.

    His company Cavan Forde Group had an exclusive agreement to supply Australian-made Hebel-branded AAC products - but when that deal ended the company was reliant on Chinese-made panels.

    Commissioner Anna Rawlings say Forde gave the impression the product he was supplying was Hebel, when the panels were manufactured in China.

    He also published design guides that gave the incorrect impression engineering firm Opus had endorsed the cladding.

    Cavan Forde is the third defendant to plead guilty in this case.
