Following significant growth in New Zealand, Moddex opened its doors in Christchurch on Wednesday 1 August 2018.
Previously serviced with thanks to distributor Monkey Toe Group, Moddex have invested in a local warehouse and support team in order to service clients directly in New Zealand.
The new office and factory have been a flurry of activity over the past few months as operations commence.
Alvin Rowland, Managing Director - Australia, said he is very excited about the prospect of servicing New Zealand architects, builders and project managers directly.
"Over the past few years we have developed a responsive team of technical staff servicing in the order of 1250 projects Australia-wide. Leveraging off this model, New Zealand was the next logical step for expansion."
"The establishment of a dedicated New Zealand-based office and warehouse are important steps forward for Moddex in supporting our ongoing commitment to service. A presence in New Zealand enables us to provide local expertise and support, as well as products available ex-stock for immediate delivery."
"We're also delighted to welcome aboard Jeremy Raikes as Managing Director of Moddex New Zealand."
Jeremy joins Moddex with extensive management experience including over 10 years as National Sales Manager for Argyle Performance Workwear.
Managing Director - New Zealand, Jeremy Raikes said "we are really excited to build a local presence in New Zealand and help our clients through the exciting transition and beyond.”
"New Zealand has its own distinct challenges and our new location will serve to better address the needs of our customers with innovative and compliant solutions."
Jeremy Raikes, Managing Director (NZ) and Alvin Rowland, Managing Director (AU) sign final paperwork to open Moddex New Zealand.
