All of the Directors and Shareholders work within the day-to-day operations, creating an assurance of quality and achievement throughout the company. Not having foreign ownership or a head office to answer to the team understand the importance of playing the long game keeping a happy customer for life is better than making a quick opportunistic profit. This also means we spend more time focusing on doing what we do, rather than reporting results to a greater body and keeping the proceeds firmly in Canterbury.
Because of this, we also have a policy of buying locally if we can and doing business where we do business. We prefer to purchase from our customers and within our community because we understand that a local economy works better when we support each other.
We also live for fire protection. Our team is full of people committed to helping others including volunteers for St John Ambulance, Land SAR, Rural Fire, Meals on Wheels, and (of course) Volunteer Firefighters - within what we do, the one value we hold high above all others is that every role within our company no matter how small is 100% in the business of saving lives and protecting New Zealand businesses.
