Here are testimonials from NZPM Shareholders:
Scott Garvie from Scotties Potties is an NZPM Shareholder in Wellington and he has this to say about being a part of the NZPM Cooperative:
“ I signed up as a Shareholder with NZPM on day one of starting my business. I had seen the benefits my previous employer had received and I got the same treatment even as the new guy. With the instalment option of paying off shares it helped with cash flow keeping money where it’s needed in my business. Since then Plumbing World has helped my company grow and now I couldn’t think of shopping anywhere else.”
Layne Watson from Layne Watson Plumbing Ltd has this to say about the NZPM Cooperative:
“We believe that being a Shareholder in NZPM has led to the continued success and growth of our plumbing business in Christchurch. Our relationships with staff at Branch and Head Office levels have benefitted our business through professional development and invaluable contacts throughout the plumbing industry of New Zealand. We enjoy being a part of a large corporation and all the business and social opportunities it provides. “
Blake Solomon from BSP:
“I am a certifying Plumber, Gasfitter and Drainlayer in Gisborne. From the moment I started my apprenticeship there was no doubt in my mind that when I went out on my own, in my own business, that I would become a Shareholder in NZPM. NZPM/Plumbing World is more than just a supply merchant to me, it is a partnership. They helped give me the tools and the confidence to know that I could be successful in my own business. Being part of this cooperative gives me a sense of having ownership of something larger. I can share in the benefits of being part of the largest national NZ owned plumbing supplies merchant.”
