With demand for our farm fencing supplies and great service, we have made plans to open distribution centres in Christchurch and Tauranga to better cater for farmers that reside away from Dunedin and Hastings.
In August we will have our first shipment of farm fencing supplies arrive to our Christchurch depot. Christchurch will play a slightly different role to Dunedin, Hastings and Tauranga as we will be bringing in a range of new farming products to test in the Christchurch market. New farming products consist of portable sheep yards and fertilizer spreaders among others. The operation will be the same as Dunedin where our customers can buy their farm fencing supplies online, via Trade Me or via a phone call with the option to collect products from our Christchurch central location or have them delivered to your farm through Mainfreight. Product viewings can also be coordinated through Angus who will look after our Christchurch distribution centre. More announcements are to come regarding exact location and our first official day of operating. We will keep our customers informed.
Later in the year we will be adding a second distribution centre to the North Island in Tauranga. The aim for Tauranga is to is service our farmers in the far north. The first container will have our core range of Deer Gates, Sheep Gates, Bull/Cattle Gates and Portable Cattle Yard products. The operation will be the same as in Hastings where our customers can buy their fencing supplies through our online store, via Trade Me or via a phone call with the option to collect products from our Tauranga location or have them delivered to your farm through Mainfreight.
Farmers are burdened constantly by problems related to their farms’ economic situation, various regulations that govern farming and the administration accompanying agricultural policy. That’s why we feel it is important to partner with our farmers to ensure that getting their farm fencing supplies is an easy process at the lowest cost in the market.
More news will be announced soon regarding our Christchurch and Tauranga locations.
