We are operating to supply essential businesses with the Cleaning, Safety & PPE gear they require to continue working.

Due to our strong supplier relationships, our procurement team are able to secure supply of many products where availability has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes hand sanitisers, wipes, masks and gloves.

Hand Sanitiser and Masks require pre-payment in order to secure stock.

We have confirmed stocks of P2 equivalent respirators which we have pre-sold our first shipment which landed last week (9th April).

We have a further 50,000 N95 masks on the way at present - Secure your requirements now!

Stock availability for many items is changing daily based off demand – we would recommend placing orders for the stock you require now, in order to receive it as soon as possible. Currently, we have secured supply of the following products which are either in stock or due in stock;

When thinking about the quantity of these products you will require, our recommendation would be to consider the quantity that you estimate you will require not just for the coming weeks, but potentially a few months. Supply of these products is likely to be affected until after the current pandemic is passed, especially where products are manufactured overseas. We are happy to help with forecasting, and can provide advice on the most suitable products for your workforce.

As COVID-19 escalates through Europe and the US, demand for PPE is growing exponentially. We expect this to continue for the foreseeable future – until COVID-19 cases in Europe and the US begin to decline significantly, the demand for respirators and other PPE items will continue to far exceed the worlds supply capabilities.

Please be aware that due to the circumstances, our standard return policy will not apply. We will not be accepting any returns of products ordered over the pandemic period because of the heightened risk of health & safety to our staff. Once the outbreak is deemed to be over, our policy on returns will be reconsidered then.

We want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the responsibility for all NZ companies to continue paying their suppliers on time during this current crisis. In times such as these, it is essential that cash continues flowing through the economy in order to avoid a recession. We are 100% committed to doing our bit to keep cash flowing by paying our suppliers on time. To meet this commitment, our plea to customers is to please continue paying your bills on time, as you normally would. As a reminder, our trading terms are as follow: payments are due by the 20th of the month following the date of invoice. We will be closely monitoring customer accounts, and all orders will be subject to these being kept current. We are doing our absolute best to contribute positively to our economy, and we ask you to support us in this.
