A local heat pump specialist has pumped out another big award. Goldstar heat pumps, installers of heat pumps in Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga was previously named Waikato’s number one Fujitsu dealer. And now they’ve accepted an even bigger title: number one Fujitsu dealer in New Zealand.

This is no small feat for the expanding company. Fujitsu is New Zealand’s favourite air afterall. So this means Goldstar Heat Pumps is the biggest dealer of New Zealand’s favourite air – not a small feat.

What’s next for Goldstar you may be wondering? If they follow this trend then probably world domination.

Shaun Cosgrave’s ToView Team Take Out Region’s Top Awards

It was victory all round for Shaun Cosgrave’s ToView team at the Harcourts Central Region awards in Tauranga last week, for the October – December quarter.

ToView team member and rural sales specialist, Aaron Davey, won the Top Sales Consultant award, across all real estate sectors. Shaun took out second place, making him the top sales consultant for residential sales. Shaun was also named the Top Exclusive Lister for the quarter.

“Having our team as number one in rural sales and residential sales is very pleasing,” said Shaun. “We always strive to achieve the best results for our clients, so we really appreciate their support”.

Shaun has been working in the Hamilton area for over 20 years and was the first Harcourts sales person to achieve property sales of over $500m.

Campbell Scott, manager of Harcourts Central Hamilton office, said that Shaun’s achievement of being the top residential sales consultant for the region was exceptional.

“To be able to get that to level after taking a six month sabbatical is a great effort.

“Harcourts has about 330 sales people across the region, and it was one of the most buoyant quarters of the last couple of years, so the ToView team have done exceptionally well”, Campbell said.

“In fact our whole Harcourts Hamilton central office did exceptionally well, picking up five of the six awards in our category”.

Harcourts Hamilton saw a dramatic rise in monthly sales in the second half of 2014. There were 196 sales in August, rising to 305 for December, equating to a 55% increase over that time.

Wellington House Factory Open for Business

New Zealand’s first ever house building factory has opened it’s doors in Wellington. The factory is aiming to produce 500 prefab homes annually.

Trade HQ wrote, “Sean Murrie, Matrix Homes chief executive and director, said “People are building components of houses, then assembling them on the site. But the whole thing here is we’re turning fully finished houses with code compliance certificates.”

While this is a big leap forward as far as construction goes, it’s been speculated whether the market will be as big. Grant Florence, chief executive of Certified Builders is concerned that demand will not meet up. “They have to overcome some consumer negatives around the prefab concept because people relate it to cheap and they relate it to prefabs at schools,” he said.”

 

Pack & Send Went Global Before Going Local

Before Pack & Send could reach full local market penetration, it needed to go global. Global in deliveries that is! Pack & Send’s business model is based on packing and sending items which that are fragile, awkward, or valuable to any address in the world.

Want to send a heirloom ring to Tainjin China? Pack & Send can cover it. How about Bali bound baseballs? Pack & Send will throw them that far. How about elephant tusks to South Africa? Pack & Send will alert local authorities and most likely not deliver that. But you get the gist of it – Pack & Send makes deliveries.

Currently managing director Matthew Everest has a large painting, a record turntable and a very large backpack in his Blenheim road packing store. He told Stuff.co.nz, “If you would ring up any courier company and say this is what I’ve got, they would say, no, no and probably too big.”

There is definitely demand. Everest says millions of goods are bought and sold on TradeMe each year. And that’s just TradeMe! Imagine the goods being shipped around worldwide.
