UK-based gun-care specialist Napier of London has created Napier of London New Zealand Ltd to directly serve the New Zealand industry.
The company will run out of Hawkes Bay and products will be bulk shipped from the UK, where they are designed and manufactured, to make sure all products are available and at the very best prices.
Steve Rowe, Napier’s managing director, said: “Our loyal customers in New Zealand could not always enjoy the features and quality of Napier products.
“Understandably, it is a long way to ship. Importers are often reluctant to carry such a large range of items or stock. This in turn inflates the local prices and reduces the options for consumers. We believe that all out customers, retail and dealers, should be able to source the very best items, at realistic rates.
“It has long been frustrating when we receive e-mails and calls every month from shooters in New Zealand, but it’s simply not an option to economically send by air from England,” continued Steve, who grew up in the Hawkes Bay area.
The new business is independently operated and will be able to ship to all New Zealand addresses.
The company also has a web store where all items will be able to be purchased – www.napieroflondon.co.nz.
